The Federation of Acropylae is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Harold Saxon with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.475 billion Acropylaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-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 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, Acropolis spends billions upgrading public transport, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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 25th in the West Pacific and 2,019th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 665 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
