Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Federation of Aeulus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Executive Danette with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.741 billion Federals are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeulia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Federal economy, worth a remarkable 1,135 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 239,588 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 723,089 per year while the poor average 61,850, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Aeulus has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Wolf', and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aeulus's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ascension.

Aeulus is ranked 25,473rd in the world and 872nd in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,643.59 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
