The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.298 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 82%. 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.

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, and its currency is the Fyrus.

Acario is ranked 347th in Capitalist Paradise and 85,427th in the world for Nudest, with 86 Cheeks per Square Mile.
