The Free Land of Aegethia is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its compassionate population are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Social Welfare and Education are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 50%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Trout Farming.
Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, surveillance cameras are banned, euthanasia is legal, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime is relatively low. Aegethia's national animal is the blue morpho butterfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the nethes. This paragraph will be frequently updated in accordance with the progression of The Free Land of Aegethia.
The Free Land of Aegethia is currently "ruled" by Ménno Nekalbthith, which translates as 'He Who Leads The Equal'. He is as compassionate and wise as the rest of the population, and makes sure he does not rise above anyone in social status, or get any benefits whatsoever. He was chosen by the people of Aegethia to lead them wherever possible.
