The Democratic States of Akurian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.445 billion Akurianians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 25.7%.

The thriving Akurianian economy, worth 606 trillion Batatas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,486 Batatas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Akurian's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akurian is ranked 40,791st in the world and 129th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,115.25 Tourists Per Hour.
