The Resurgent Republic of Aertemedia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Triaere lyrae Ashaenae with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.925 billion Aertemedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alten. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aertemedian economy, worth a remarkable 1,077 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,351 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For 25 Marks tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aertemedia's national animal is the Vanorah Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aertemedia is ranked 13,707th in the world and 35th in International Democratic Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,122.06 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
