The Polystate Republic of Aeternitatia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by William G Gallows with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.747 billion Aeternitatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Idras. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternitatian economy, worth 541 trillion Favents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 114,106 Favents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 342,833 per year while the poor average 29,646, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Eminent domain has been abolished, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aeternitatia's national animal is the Formica, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnaevma.

Aeternitatia is ranked 15,964th in the world and 27th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Influential, scoring 1,843 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
