The Republic of Aetulia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Anthony Jackson with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.544 billion Aetulians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aetulian economy, worth a remarkable 2,913 trillion Drakkars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 340,962 Drakkars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,851,301 per year while the poor average 7,916, a ratio of 360 to 1.

Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, the Dragon stadiums are open 24/7, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aetulia's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Aetulia is ranked 68,126th in the world and 3,578th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,764.46 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
