The State of Guankenken Aike is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.823 billion Guankenken Aikeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jelpa. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Guankenken Aikean economy, worth a remarkable 3,188 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 467,355 Teshken Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

"Ktenon Sheiaik got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, the government is accused of being heartless by those considered brainless, and the treehouse in Epolenk Parron Park is the tallest building in Guankenken Aike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guankenken Aike's national animal is the Epolenk Parron, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Aluen.

Guankenken Aike is ranked 254th in the world and 15th in Guer Aike Territories for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 23,841.83 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
