The Aderan Republic of Acroticus is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor Arriston Andros with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.786 billion Acroticians 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Therinia. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Acroticusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,292 trillion Ialiras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,205 Ialiras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime is totally unknown. Acroticus's national animal is the Zaire Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Acroticus is ranked 16,630th in the world and 7th in The Commonwealth Society for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 294.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
