The Allied Planetary Archipelago of Aeterno Tranquillitas is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Denny Rosenfeld with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.08 billion Aeternos 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternum economy, worth a remarkable 2,666 trillion Replicates a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 203,882 Replicates, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Denny Rosenfeld is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and populations of two-headed Dolphins have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeterno Tranquillitas's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sober Pastafarianism.

Aeterno Tranquillitas is ranked 305,315th in the world and 331st in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 4.16 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
