The Backwards Nation of El Aitrebil is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Arcbalia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, triple-decker prams, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.223 billion El Aitrebilians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitalia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.5%.

The thriving El Aitrebilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Modeerfs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 147,603 Modeerfs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 525,249 per year while the poor average 29,863, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, Supreme Leader Arcbalia is worshipped as a god, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Supreme Leader Arcbalia tend to disappear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. El Aitrebil's national animal is the Evod, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

El Aitrebil is ranked 123,142nd in the world and 26th in Libertium for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 850.76 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
