The Eternal Empire of Accipitridia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Andrea Khyn with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.59 billion Accipitrids are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viessia Metro. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 295 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,013 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, the weather in Viessia Metro is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Credit treacle machine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Red Phoenix and its national religion is Atheism.

Accipitridia is ranked 211,362nd in the world and 332nd in First World Order for Most Politically Free, scoring 7.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
