The Democratic States of Aesi is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Dr Joe Obama Jr the Third with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 975 million Aesians 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 Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyria. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aesian economy, worth 94.3 trillion Kyres a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,668 Kyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has had its funding stripped back as the nation seeks a smaller role in international politics, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Aesi, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aesi's national animal is the Red tailed hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aesi is ranked 43,138th in the world and 1,571st in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,193.13 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
