The Akuist Empire of Aku City is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Skylar Steviko with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.117 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, Spirituality, and Education 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 2,193 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 167,208 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 864,913 per year while the poor average 17,561, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, builders across Aku City are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. 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 62,956th in the world and 143rd in New Warsaw Pact for Most Authoritarian, with 0.32 Stalins.
