OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.976 billion 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 88%. An almost nonexistent private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 541st in Capitalist Paradise and 116,680th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
