The Enchanting Republic of Ajek is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.341 billion Ajekians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 90.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ajekian economy, worth a remarkable 1,685 trillion Izleks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 97,197 Izleks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, hunters often become the hunted, the new one Izlek coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ajek's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ajek is ranked 67,933rd in the world and 5th in Laraniem for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
