The Empire of Aether Inc is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arthar - Shin hye sun with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.576 billion Aereans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lavera. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aeresian economy, worth 241 trillion Archaias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 93,800 Archaias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has enacted freedom of information, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aether Inc's national animal is the Red Feathered Peacock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aether Inc is ranked 211,569th in the world and 490th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.61 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
