The Free Land of Aooa is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 333 million Aooans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortuna. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aooan economy, worth 22.7 trillion Chits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,206 Chits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prudishness is on the way out, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aooa's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aooa is ranked 139,588th in the world and 7,596th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -17.1 on the Hayek Index.
