Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Constitutional Grand Duchy of Acquitane is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duke Maximillian Julianus Pond with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.797 billion Acquitagasques are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acquilistine. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Acquitanean economy, worth 223 trillion Acquitiagasque Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,950 Acquitiagasque Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acquitane's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Acquitane is ranked 200th in World Alliance and 61,610th in the world for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 0 Valid Endorsements.
