South Aetulia

Population2.325 billion

LeaderComrade Razvan


The People's Republic of South Aetulia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Razvan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.325 billion Aetulians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arenthia. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient South Aetulian economy, worth 437 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 Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 188,264 Drakkars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time South Aetulian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 8,065th in the world and 415th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,297.93 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
