The Free Enlightened Order of Aivintis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen-Magister Sascha with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.342 billion Aivintians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Aslough. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.6%.

The powerhouse Aivintian economy, worth 255 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,059 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 413,963 per year while the poor average 19,940, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aivintis's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Order of Enlightenment.

Aivintis is ranked 86,979th in the world and 1,957th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 84.2345641454 Days.
