The Empire of Akorial is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.982 billion Akorialians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lareliw. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akorialian economy, worth 531 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,613 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akorial's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akorial is ranked 146,854th in the world and 6,802nd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
