The All-Devouring Kraken of Aki Zeta is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sid Meier with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.197 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, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. 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 7,155 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 229,380 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. 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 2,342nd in the world and 89th in Osiris for Rudest Citizens, with 206.09 Insults Per Minute.
