The All-Devouring Kraken of Aki Zeta is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sid Meier with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.206 billion Telepaths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrtle Beach. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aki Zetan economy, worth a remarkable 6,659 trillion gold coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 228,020 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aki Zeta's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is secular humanism.

Aki Zeta is ranked 9,108th in the world and 58th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 4 Valid Endorsements.
