The Temporal Paradox of Aikion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Kronos with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.595 billion Aikionians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akrus. The average income tax rate is 22.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Aikionian economy, worth an astonishing 12,856 trillion chronospheres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 465,910 chronospheres, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, it's always rabbit season, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aikion's national animal is the komodo dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Trioism.

Aikion is ranked 168,187th in the world and 5th in Realm of Unrestricted Science for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 54.31 on the Hayek Index.
