The Commune of Aylwater is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nikolaus Gebhard with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.663 billion Aylwaterians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aylwaterian economy, worth 316 trillion Aylmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,832 Aylmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aylwater's national animal is the Canis Rufus, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

Aylwater is ranked 13,911th in the world and 778th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.02 on the Human Development Index.
