The People's Republic of Akaidia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Ettore Fontana with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.49 billion Akaidians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cittą della Vittoria. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Akaidian economy, worth 335 trillion Akaidian Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,729 Akaidian Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akaidia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Akaidia is ranked 41,743rd in the world and 1st in Union of Nations for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,441.58 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
