The Republic of Achlys 40 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, disturbing lack of elderly people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 756 million Achlys 40ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.9%.
The Achlys 40ian economy, worth 42.1 trillion salts a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,633 salts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 229,744 per year while the poor average 8,857, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.
Glamping Achlys 40ians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achlys 40's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
