South Aetulia

LeaderComrade Razvan


The People's Republic of South Aetulia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade Razvan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.839 billion Aetulians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arenthia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient South Aetulian economy, worth 519 trillion Drakkars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 183,072 Drakkars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maritime signalling has become tedious since only the South Aetulian flag can be displayed, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, and foreign lack of enthusiasm for South Aetulian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Aetulia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

South Aetulia is ranked 128,209th in the world and 6,219th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
