The Free Republic of Aflana is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wesley Ridel with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 7.592 billion Aflanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newport. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aflanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,001 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,874 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is infamous for its mass graves of discarded robots, Wesley Ridel's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aflana's national animal is the red deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aflanlic.

Aflana is ranked 234,522nd in the world and 7,915th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
