The Republic of Ayytaly is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Arturus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.765 billion Ayytalians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sitonit City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ayytalian economy, worth 380 trillion Fonzes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 137,792 Fonzes, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, and the first step of recovery from alcoholism usually entails buying a bicycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ayytaly's national animal is the Jumping Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fonzism.

Ayytaly is ranked 16,548th in the world and 1st in Roman Empire for Highest Average Incomes, with 137,792.38 Standard Monetary Units.
