The Occupied Territory of Aerlanica is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Madylin Jones with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.68 billion Aerlanicans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twilight's Hollow. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aerlanican economy, worth 567 trillion Bucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,200 Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', and manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aerlanica's national animal is the Frost Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Democratic Fananticism.

Aerlanica is ranked 7,035th in the world and 20th in Cape of Good Hope for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 468.73 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
