The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.137 billion Aeljaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elja. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth 975 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 189,986 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and angry men scowl at each other across chess boards. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeljae is ranked 216,113th in the world and 8,799th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -356.84 on the Hayek Index.
