The Republic of Achiotopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Achilleus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.487 billion Achiotopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Achiopolis. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Achiotopian economy, worth a remarkable 7,411 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 329,601 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown. Achiotopia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Achiotopia is ranked 165,153rd in the world and 1,116th in 10000 Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
