The Galactic Republic of Aeterniia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.845 billion Aeterniians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proteus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The very strong Aeterniian economy, worth 300 trillion Galactic Standard Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 78,237 Galactic Standard Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices, the Aeterniia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aeterniia's national animal is the Pomeranian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aeterniia is ranked 37,443rd in the world and 167th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
