The Commonwealth of The Aetherian Isles is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Isaac Katsumoto with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.86 billion Aetherians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aerunath. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aetherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,770 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,827 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Aerunath, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, the news is showing footage of Isaac Katsumoto bullying an old man to the point of tears, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime is totally unknown. The Aetherian Isles's national animal is the Humpback Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Omnism.

The Aetherian Isles is ranked 1,647th in the world and 67th in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,626.56 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
