The Empire of Aikoland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mélodie Bélanger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, aversion to nipples, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.407 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 receive no funds. 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 6,037 trillion Aikolandais francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 327,996 Aikolandais francs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,334,359 per year while the poor average 15,230, a ratio of 153 to 1.

Boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Aikolandais franc charge on their phone bill, and the Aikolandais crested eagle stadiums are open 24/7. 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 1,521st in the world and 5th in Osakaland for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 9,210.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
