The Kingdom of Achaeansland is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 543 million 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, Welfare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.4%.

The very strong Achaeanslandian economy, worth 43.8 trillion Phoenixes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 80,689 Phoenixes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 238,723 per year while the poor average 21,426, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

People experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up, euthanasia is illegal, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", and skateparks can be found in every city. 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 27,137th in the world and 19th in Greater Middle East for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,635.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
