OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.852 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. The average income tax rate is 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.

Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. 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 26th in Capitalist Paradise and 5,684th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 28 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
