The Back in Black of Aquilanion is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aquila with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.305 billion Aquilans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eriadni City. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aquilan economy, worth 321 trillion Aquiline Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 74,700 Aquiline Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bungee jumpers rarely go splat, surveillance cameras are banned, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aquilanion's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aquilanion is ranked 47,677th in the world and 120th in The Black Hawks for Most Developed, scoring 66.29 on the Human Development Index.
