The Incorporated States of Autarkheia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Evola with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.998 billion Autarkheians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Autarkheian economy, worth 360 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 180,451 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 836,410 per year while the poor average 23,441, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Autarkheia at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, babysitters are a thing of the past, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Autarkheian bee, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Autarkheia's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Autarkheia is ranked 83,352nd in the world and 3,273rd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 67.17 on the Hayek Index.
