The Community of Aequus is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Trustee Of Aequus with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 981 million Aequusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zephyr. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aequusian economy, worth 86.6 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,299 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aequus's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aequus is ranked 8,138th in the world and 22nd in Wintreath for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 8,440.06 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
