The Bardic Lorekeepers of Aethelia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by JEM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.997 billion Aethelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aethelian economy, worth a remarkable 7,821 trillion newtons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 325,920 newtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

JEM's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and JEM's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime is totally unknown. Aethelia's national animal is the aurora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Aethelia is ranked 53rd in the world and 1st in Middle Earth for Most Secular, with 99.37 Atheism Rate.
