The Protectorate of Aelhaeran is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chananya Raziel with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 13.872 billion noble Aelhaeranians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sha'ar Chesed. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient eternally Aelhaeranish economy, worth a remarkable 3,686 trillion New Israeli Shekels 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 265,737 New Israeli Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime is totally unknown. Aelhaeran's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is an Aelhaeranite religion.

Aelhaeran is ranked 226,161st in the world and 343rd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -41.94 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
