The Resurgent Republic of Aertemedia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Head of council Jyk Kolner with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.001 billion Aertemedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alten. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aertemedian economy, worth 714 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,326 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aertemedia's national animal is the Vanorah Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aertemedia is ranked 98,763rd in the world and 49th in International Democratic Union for Most Extreme, scoring 18.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
