The United Socialist States of Acyria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Secretary Manson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.221 billion Acyrians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marilyn. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Acyrian economy, worth 344 trillion Tickets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 81,597 Tickets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

In distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Marilyn make great practice for foreign snipers, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acyria's national animal is the Desert Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Acyria is ranked 58,818th in the world and 119th in The Free Nations Region for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.72 percentage of bribes refused.
