The Trotskyist Federation of Achung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Klement Gottwald with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.69 billion Achungians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lachung. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Achungian economy, worth a remarkable 4,937 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 314,685 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, major cities run on potato batteries, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and the government invades its allies more than its enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achung's national animal is the Snork, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Slovanium.

Achung is ranked 278,265th in the world and 50th in The Internationale for Fattest Citizens, with 5.37 Obesity Rate.
