Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of South Aetulia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Razvan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 1.372 billion Aetulians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Administration and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arenthia. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Aetulian economy, worth 236 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 172,187 Drakkars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, euthanasia is illegal, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 14,797th in the world and 809th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 167 Meters Of Sunlight.
