The Red of Accipitridia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Rykios Khyn with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 911 million Accipitrids have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konopolis. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 143 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 157,421 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, murder is sanctioned if the legal paperwork is filled out correctly, and Rykios Khyn has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Red Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Accipitridia is ranked 177,035th in the world and 7,780th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
