The Republic of Ayytaly is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Arturus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.753 billion Ayytalians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sitonit City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ayytalian economy, worth 370 trillion Fonzes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 134,401 Fonzes, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, Ayytalians have replaced bears in a popular idiom, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and women should never trust a man who turns up to a first date with an open bottle in his hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ayytaly's national animal is the Jumping Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fonzism.

Ayytaly is ranked 23,518th in the world and 3rd in Roman Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77 on the Rand Index.
