The Union of Akarea is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sun Lu-Tsi with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 10.669 billion Akareans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fujing. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akarean economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion Akarean Yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,850 Akarean Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', and every school is receiving a brand new eraser. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Akarea's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zodiac.

Akarea is ranked 13,890th in the world and 6th in The Democratika for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 343.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
