The Federation of Acropylae is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Harold Saxon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 8.062 billion Acropylaeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acropolis. The average income tax rate is 3%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

Untold millions of Genesses are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and almost all of Acropylae's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acropylae's national animal is the Deranged Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Acropylism, and its currency is the Geness.

Acropylae is ranked 728th in the West Pacific and 29,404th in the world for Nudest, with 182 Cheeks per Square Mile.
