LeaderSébastien Larousse


The Constitutional Republic of Aclion is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sébastien Larousse with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.24 billion Aclionians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastiat. The average income tax rate is 37.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Aclioni economy, worth a remarkable 2,255 trillion Francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,664 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Aclion, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime is totally unknown. Aclion's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aclion is ranked 5,603rd in the world and 7th in Oatland for Most Cultured, scoring 146 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
