Population1.862 billion

CapitalFort Aons


The Rogue Nation of Aons is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 1.862 billion Aonsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Aons. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Aonsian economy, worth 359 trillion Puns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 192,987 Puns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aons's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Aons is ranked 147,063rd in the world and 6,132nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 455.09 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
