The Tyranny of Aivintis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Theondume with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.676 billion Aivintians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Aslough. The average income tax rate is 47.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aivintian economy, worth 523 trillion crowns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,927 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, Theondume's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aivintis's national animal is the Wolfabuk, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Dievinism.

Aivintis is ranked 65,003rd in the world and 2,487th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,213.46 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
