The Lorigian-Aylwaterian Union of Aylwater is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Palten von Hanover-Wittelsbach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.807 billion Aylwaterians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aylwaterian economy, worth 223 trillion Aylmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,533 Aylmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aylwater's national animal is the Canis Rufus and its national religion is Christianity.

Aylwater is ranked 140,317th in the world and 7,644th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -18.86 on the Hayek Index.
