The Socialist Federal Republic of Aqual is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Don Quijote with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.379 billion Aqualias 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toboso. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Aqualian economy, worth 164 trillion Quels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 48,694 Quels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, every workday begins with group therapy, and Don Quijote is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aqual's national animal is the Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aqual is ranked 28,025th in the world and 1,575th in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 22.78 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
