The Poetic Tendencies of Aersoldorf is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Zaphod Beeblebrox with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, lack of airports, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 22.771 billion Aersoldorfians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The minute, moralistic government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Healthcare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aim Your Missiles Here. Income tax is unheard of.

The sizeable but stagnant Aersoldorfian economy, worth 43.2 trillion Enslaving Enablers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 1,899 Enslaving Enablers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, and all you have to do is pray to get into Aersoldorf. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aersoldorf's national animal is the Yeti, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Aersoldorf is ranked 254,770th in the world and 1,806th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -50.13 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
