The Rogue Nation of Ayedyistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by His Regal Gnomeness with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.652 billion Ayedyistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ayedyistanian economy, worth 599 trillion Foscas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,061 Foscas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, His Regal Gnomeness is rumored to have teleportation powers, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, and Ayedyistanian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ayedyistan's national animal is the Monty, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ayedyistan is ranked 106,112th in the world and 3,369th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 15.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
