The Armed Republic of Acheas is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 486 million Acheasians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jabon. The average income tax rate is 48.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Acheasian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Sones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,974 Sones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acheas's national animal is the Cassowary, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Acheas is ranked 23,167th in the world and 674th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 7.9 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
