The Galactic Federation of Aeulus is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Executive Danette with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.379 billion Federals are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Federal economy, worth a remarkable 1,634 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 256,268 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 788,849 per year while the poor average 64,314, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 166,967th in the world and 5,630th in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 10.14 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
