The Dominion of Achlan is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 20.614 billion Achlanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Achlanian economy, worth 530 trillion Axes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,738 Axes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achlan's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achlan is ranked 31,714th in the world and 26th in Middle Earth for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
