The People's Republic of Akolos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Apex Akolos with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.531 billion Akolosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akolos City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The powerhouse Akolosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,635 trillion Columns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 112,572 Columns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, Apex Akolos's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akolos's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Akolos is ranked 305,185th in the world and 68th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
