The People's Republic of Akumanga is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aaron Iovis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.985 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karatoa. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Akumangan economy, worth 265 trillion Kalatas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,547 Kalatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the weather in Karatoa is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and Aaron Iovis's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. 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 Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Akumanga is ranked 207,787th in the world and 184th in 21st Century Rome for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -11.4 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
