The Glittering United States of Achaian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Rupert with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 21.027 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hectoricia. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achaian's national animal is the black cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the platinum stone.

Achaian is ranked 3,820th in Lazarus and 122,889th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -10,136 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
