The Union of Akrennia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 908 million Akrennians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Akrennian economy, worth 130 trillion bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 143,961 bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 515,949 per year while the poor average 28,808, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

Akrennia City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, millions of bits have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Chicken Disease, and accusations of corruption stick when the accused are long-gone. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Akrennia's national animal is the chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Akrennia is ranked 19,382nd in the world and 191st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,005.99 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
