The Allied Planetary Archipelago of Aeterno Tranquillitas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Denny Rosenfeld with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.406 billion Aeternos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternum economy, worth a remarkable 2,530 trillion Replicates a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 203,943 Replicates, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, Aeterno Tranquillitas has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeterno Tranquillitas's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sober Pastafarianism.

Aeterno Tranquillitas is ranked 302,234th in the world and 329th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -585.76 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
