Achlys 40

Population756 million


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.

Achlys 40 is ranked 29,475th in the world and 78th in Artificial Solar System for Most Beautiful Environments, with 832.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
