The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and notable for its surprisingly youthful workforce, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.697 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.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalle Demos. The average income tax rate is 78.9%.

The strong Acarioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,082 trillion Fyruses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 64,832 Fyruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, punitive tariffs protect local industry, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. 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.

Acario is ranked 142nd in Capitalist Paradise and 11,085th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 181 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
