The Kingdom of Aelyzia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elizabeth V with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.351 billion Aelyzi are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elizabeth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Aelyzian economy, worth 435 trillion Elizas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,026 Elizas, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cheap goods stamped "Made In Dàguó" are increasingly rare, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aelyzia's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Aelyzia is ranked 158,798th in the world and 804th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.81 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
