The Republic of Aquamarine Island is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Wonderful President with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.297 billion Aquamarinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gunaj. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aquamarinian economy, worth 260 trillion Pirongs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 113,217 Pirongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', posters on 'Aquamarinian Values' advise against being proud of Aquamarine Island, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aquamarine Island's national animal is the Eel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is B Maohijuu.

Aquamarine Island is ranked 221,807th in the world and 7,699th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 4.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
