The Democratic States of Accastine is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.201 billion Accastineans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Accastinean economy, worth 244 trillion auls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,512 auls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied owl, nobody knows why the caged owl sings, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accastine's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Accastine is ranked 37,027th in the world and 1,004th in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,414.03 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
