The Republic of Akal is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, rampant corporate plagiarism, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.865 billion Akalians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akalian economy, worth 632 trillion 9003s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 107,805 9003s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, prospective secessionists nervously declare how worthless and unimportant they are, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akal's national animal is the 9003, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Akal is ranked 39,679th in the world and 1st in acceptable for Most Extreme, scoring 34.37 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
