The Republic of Aihon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by James with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.989 billion Aihonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuwe Opstandsstad. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aihonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Jeens a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,127 Jeens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and the well-to-do in The East Pacific are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aihon's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aihon is ranked 85,047th in the world and 1,299th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 330 billion Standard Monetary Units.
