The Central European Union of Achain is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gudrun Ensslin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.945 billion Achainians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vorrossa. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Achainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,513 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, and hospitals have to sell their computers on vBay in order to afford the ransomware decryption payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achain's national animal is the House Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achain is ranked 9,744th in the world and 4th in The Great Red Union for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,586.48 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
