The Grand Duchy of Acario is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Koloktos with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 25.416 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 85.6%.

The very strong Acarioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,783 trillion Fyruses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 70,184 Fyruses, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 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 54,224th in the world and 212th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 157,100.35 Standard Monetary Units.
