The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.829 billion Aeljaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elja. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 193,179 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Aeljae, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeljae is ranked 162,403rd in the world and 5,925th in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
