The Akuist Empire of Aku City is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Skylar Steviko with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.014 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aku City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aku City's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Khaosism, and its currency is the Credit.

Aku City is ranked 200th in Esquarium and 104,083rd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -3 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
