The Grand Duchy of Aohtehaldetoun is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.302 billion Aohtehaldetounians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Aohtehaldetounian economy, worth 65.0 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 28,226 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is reining in public spending, Tigers are considered a delicacy, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aohtehaldetoun's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aohtehaldetoun is ranked 190,546th in the world and 3,265th in Artificial Solar System for Smartest Citizens, with 22.19 quips per hour.
