The Republic of Aquariod is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 742 million Aquariodians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.6%.

The very strong Aquariodian economy, worth 54.4 trillion gemhearts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 73,315 gemhearts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,679 per year while the poor average 18,283, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Cities in Aquariod declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, organ donation is compulsory, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, and Aquariod recently decided against having a capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aquariod's national animal is the greatshell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aquariod is ranked 32,771st in the world and 38th in Enadia for Most Devout, with 892.16 Prayers Per Hour.
