The Bardic Lorekeepers of Aethelia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by JEM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.904 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. 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 7,386 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 322,483 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the government is giving peace a chance, and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. 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 228,166th in the world and 106th in International Democratic Union for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2260.75 on the Hayek Index.
