The Empire of Aaron T Beck is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ritual sacrifices, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed population of 8.327 billion Aaron T Beckians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.6%.

The large but underdeveloped Aaron T Beckian economy, worth 292 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,098 Shiny Green Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aaron T Beck's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aaron T Beck is ranked 153,731st in the world and 32nd in Ashen Fields for Smartest Citizens, with 26.3 quips per hour.
