The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.369 billion Aeljaeans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elja. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth 403 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 170,527 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Aeljaean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Neoplatonism.

Aeljae is ranked 132,047th in the world and 4,792nd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
