The TCBSortaSenior Citizen of Aerodon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by David Spector with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.246 billion Aerodonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Engelsfield. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aerodonian economy, worth 115 trillion Aerodonian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 92,478 Aerodonian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Increasing numbers of children in Aerodon have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, David Spector has just been declared ruler of Aerodon in an international press conference, The Brothers has been named as Aerodon's national religion, and trade ministers have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aerodon's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Brothers.

Aerodon is ranked 233,539th in the world and 1,555th in The Communist Bloc for Most Patriotic, with 2.68 flags saluted per person per day.
