The Federation of Acropylae is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harold Saxon with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.952 billion Acropylaeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acropolis. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Acropylaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,407 trillion Genesses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,448 Genesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, students cut up leftover Genesses during Arts and Crafts, and the internet has been placed under government control. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Acropylae's national animal is the Deranged Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Acropylism.
