The Socialist Republic of Achemar is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nikolai Dunsov with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 1.154 billion Achemarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Draconia. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Achemarian economy, worth 145 trillion moras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,476 moras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They who do not work shall not eat, children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achemar's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Achemar is ranked 15,461st in the world and 484th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,188.67 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
