Population10.606 billion



The Sandbox Queendom of Aynia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ayu with an iron fist, and notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 10.606 billion locals are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margaritaville. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Aynian economy, worth 267 trillion Notes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,181 Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ayu has just been declared ruler of Aynia in an international press conference, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, Ayu is the self-declared God of all Aynia, and a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aynia's national animal is the bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ayuism.

Aynia is ranked 98,964th in the world and 12th in Warzone Sandbox for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 740.1 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
