Aeterno Tranquillitas

The Allied Planetary Archipelago of Aeterno Tranquillitas is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Denny Rosenfeld with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.19 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 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 1,856 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 202,008 Replicates, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and people can get away with murder these days. 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 16,650th in the world and 56th in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,860.71 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
