The Bardic Lorekeepers of Aethelia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by JEM with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.062 billion Aethelians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aethelian economy, worth a remarkable 7,013 trillion newtons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 317,907 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of International Democratic Union, doctors ask for written consent before making eye contact with patients, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and Aethelia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown. Aethelia's national animal is the aurora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Aethelia is ranked 256th in the world and 1st in International Democratic Union for Largest Governments, scoring 82.18 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
