The Corporate States of Aeioux is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by GOV-AI Xerathul with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.44 billion Aeiouxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illion. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aeiouxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,008 trillion Dust Particles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 135,487 Dust Particles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, every workday begins with group therapy, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeioux's national animal is the Grey Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeioux is ranked 93,547th in the world and 178th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,686.21 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
