The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.596 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 enormous, outspoken government 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 80.8%.

The very strong Acarioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,539 trillion Fyruses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 71,291 Fyruses, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 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 172,041st in the world and 260th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.79 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
