The Colony of Aech En is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 424 million Aech Enians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Aech Enian economy, worth 18.3 trillion Hyns 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. 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 43,206 Hyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aech En's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aech En is ranked 135,501st in the world and 116th in Shinka for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 307.32 Tourists Per Hour.
