The City-state of Academy City is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.865 billion Espers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 7. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Academy City economy, worth a remarkable 2,852 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 221,728 Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 708,612 per year while the poor average 52,704, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

The stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Aleister Crowley's rear echelons, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Academy City's national animal is the Clone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Academy City is ranked 2,565th in the world and 2nd in Neo Otaku Utopia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 25,516.44 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
