The Empire of Aikoland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mélodie Bélanger with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.287 billion Aikolandais are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville d'Aiko. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aikolandais economy, worth a remarkable 5,105 trillion Aikolandais francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 313,469 Aikolandais francs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,028,155 per year while the poor average 19,442, a ratio of 104 to 1.

The judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and Prime Minister Mélodie Bélanger has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aikoland's national animal is the Aikolandais crested eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Aikoland is ranked 208,137th in the world and 22nd in Osakaland for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.35 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
