The Allied Planetary Archipelago of Aeterno Tranquillitas is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Denny Rosenfeld with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.933 billion Aeternos are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternum economy, worth a remarkable 2,006 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 201,958 Replicates, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order. 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 246,791st in the world and 443rd in Forest for Most Armed, with 0.1 weapons per person.
