The Archduchy of Aeternaea is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archduke Adean II Gloustern vi Aeternis with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.363 billion Aeternaeans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tene'dakn Aetae'ii. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternaean economy, worth 850 trillion Aetermarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,889 Aetermarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 631,893 per year while the poor average 45,355, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

The comic book series 'Archduke Adean II Gloustern vi Aeternis and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aeternaea's national animal is the Aeternaean Blood Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Aeternaea is ranked 118,635th in the world and 10th in Gwalethia for Safest, scoring 60.38 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
