The Armed Republic of Aengloland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Aenglish Workers' Gemot with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.167 billion Aenglish are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Winchester. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The all-consuming Aenglish economy, worth a remarkable 1,292 trillion Silver Pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 127,094 Silver Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders the Aenglish Workers' Gemot wears an armoured gauntlet, war vets look after war animals, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aengloland's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Aengloland is ranked 203,182nd in the world and 415th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -23.11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
