Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Glittering United States of Achaian is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Rupert with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.482 billion Achaianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hectoricia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Achaianian economy, worth a remarkable 6,770 trillion platinum stones a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 265,714 platinum stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, Rupert's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achaian's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achaian is ranked 4,502nd in the world and 183rd in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,673.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
