The Transoceanic Republic of Aguaria Major is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Unenlagia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.882 billion Aguarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aguarbanapolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aguarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,736 trillion Inaguas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 308,061 Inaguas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Aguaria Major flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aguaria Major's national animal is the Fiery-Throated Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aguaria Major is ranked 138th in the world and 5th in Lazarus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 106.44 Effective Tax Rate.
