The Abandoned Republic of Akumanga is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The People with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.959 billion Akumanganis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karatoa. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Akumangan economy, worth 621 trillion Kalatas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,010 Kalatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akumanga's national animal is the Pink Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Akumanga is ranked 154,432nd in the world and 40th in 21st Century Rome for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
