The Technocratic Empire of Aether is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ludvig Maxis with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 11.066 billion aetherians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agartha. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient aetherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,849 trillion Aeriums a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,088 Aeriums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ludvig Maxis's perky ego is the talk of the town, astronomers are flocking to Aether to take advantage of its clear night skies, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aether's national animal is the netherwings owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of Athena.

Aether is ranked 30,278th in the world and 6th in Saeculum Obscurum for Most Income Equality, scoring 71.3 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
