The Free Land of Aooa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lei Ríos with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.752 billion Aooans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortuna. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aooan economy, worth 272 trillion Chits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,140 Chits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aooa's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aooa is ranked 33,325th in the world and 1,225th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,616.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
