The Principality of Aeritania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Iskander var Kelos with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.231 billion Aeritanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viira. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aeritanian economy, worth 490 trillion azoths a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,611 azoths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, Iskander var Kelos has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and a major religion has been named as Aeritania's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeritania's national animal is the seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeritania is ranked 257,739th in the world and 6,310th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
