The Socialist Republic of AquaHeart is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O¨zen ┘veteze with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.326 billion Aquarians 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 enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Musiqov˛t. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming AquaHeartian economy, worth 271 trillion Aquarian dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,722 Aquarian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek. Crime is totally unknown. AquaHeart's national animal is the wandering albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

AquaHeart is ranked 21,196th in the world and 68th in Anteria for Most Developed, scoring 81.97 on the Human Development Index.
