The Ethereal Aetherium of Vylixan Aether is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.01 billion Vylixan Aetherians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cloud City. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Vylixan Aetherian economy, worth 35.3 trillion Unobtainiums a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 34,961 Unobtainiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Vylixan Aether's new capital, and strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government. Crime is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Vylixan Aether's national animal is the Spacewhale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
