The Empire of Aikoland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mélodie Bélanger with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.743 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 5,318 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 317,650 Aikolandais francs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,099,885 per year while the poor average 18,542, a ratio of 113 to 1.

Preservative-laden Aikolandais cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers. 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 411th in the world and 2nd in Osakaland for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 529.15 on the Hayek Index.
