Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Achigana is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The cynical population of 14.221 billion Achiganans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Achiganan economy, worth 495 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,860 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Achigana has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Achigana in an international press conference, none has been named as Achigana's national religion, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is moderate. Achigana's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Achigana is ranked 36,030th in the world and 291st in Ancient Lands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,813.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
