The Thalassocracy of Aphralogea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Keniki the Elder with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.589 billion Aphralogeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vini. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aphralogean economy, worth 670 trillion Knots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,007 Knots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, Aphralogea's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, the nation's people have woken up to find themselves colonial masters of Brasilistan, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown. Aphralogea's national animal is the blue-crowned lorikeet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aphralogea is ranked 96,947th in the world and 6th in Aive for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,178.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
