The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.702 billion Aeljaeans 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, 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 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth 907 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 193,003 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and angry men scowl at each other across chess boards. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeljae is ranked 174,582nd in the world and 6,817th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.44 on the Rand Index.
