Leadera benevolent artificial intelligence


The Free Land of Akeland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by a benevolent artificial intelligence with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.203 billion Akelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parankuu. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,253 trillion Elekas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,672 Elekas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, there's no such thing as bad publicity, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime is totally unknown. Akeland's national animal is the slowworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akeland is ranked 142,740th in the world and 454th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 662.36 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
