The Democratic Republic of Aize is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 443 million Aizeans 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Aizean economy, worth 28.1 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,459 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aize's national animal is the Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aize is ranked 166,765th in the world and 6,731st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
