Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Akuist Empire of Aku City is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Skylar Steviko with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.902 billion Aku Cityians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aku City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aku Cityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,299 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 145,922 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 625,783 per year while the poor average 21,779, a ratio of 28.7 to 1.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings, the government has the power to seize property at will, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Aku City's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stevikoism.

Aku City is ranked 6th in New Warsaw Pact and 1,749th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 115 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
