The Kingdom of Achaeansland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.609 billion Achaeanslandians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.4%.

The powerhouse Achaeanslandian economy, worth 136 trillion Phoenixes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 84,650 Phoenixes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,791 per year while the poor average 22,689, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

The tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the Achaeanslandian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Achaeanslandian military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achaeansland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achaeansland is ranked 114,600th in the world and 91st in Greater Middle East for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 25,056.56 Standard Monetary Units.
