The Queen's State of Akaza is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 25.113 billion Akazans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The very strong Akazan economy, worth 989 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 39,383 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 317,440 per year while the poor average 1,110, a ratio of 285 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, child labor has been outlawed, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is a serious problem. Akaza's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Akaza is ranked 109,644th in the world and 32nd in Rhea for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
