The Aidar Islands

Population740 million



The Kingdom of The Aidar Islands is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its feral children, fear of technology, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 740 million Aidar Islanders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marceigh. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Aidarian economy, worth 23.7 trillion Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,049 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, cars are banned, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and healthcare funding has been cut. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Aidar Islands's national animal is the Quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Aidar Islands is ranked 15,380th in the world and 931st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,943.95 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
