The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.748 billion Acarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalle Demos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, anti-government web sites are springing up, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acario's national animal is the argorok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Fyrus.

Acario is ranked 352nd in Capitalist Paradise and 100,084th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
