The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.315 billion Acarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalle Demos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.2%.

The very strong Acarioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,735 trillion Fyruses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 71,385 Fyruses, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, students abandon classrooms for online education, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acario's national animal is the argorok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Acario is ranked 25,906th in the world and 137th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 202.83 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
