The Oppressed Peoples of Aetionia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Dictator with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.029 billion Aetionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yoghburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Aetionian economy, worth 294 trillion guilders a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,359 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aetionia's national animal is the bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Aetionia is ranked 14,579th in the world and 679th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 145,359.88 Standard Monetary Units.
