Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Akuist Empire of Aku City is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Skylar Steviko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.528 billion Aku Cityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aku City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Aku Cityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,927 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 167,183 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 876,077 per year while the poor average 17,097, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Aku Cityian language, and every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aku City's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stevikoism.

Aku City is ranked 1,406th in the world and 8th in New Warsaw Pact for Most Avoided, scoring 1,203.57 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
