The Bardic Lorekeepers of Aethelia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by JEM with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.8 billion Aethelians 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aethelian economy, worth a remarkable 5,343 trillion newtons 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 300,221 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and a Topid Tourist Association survey has rated Aethelia #1 for number twos. Crime is totally unknown. Aethelia's national animal is the aurora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Aethelia is ranked 1,553rd in the world and 1st in Topid for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 53,966.45 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
