The Incorporated States of Autarkheia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Evola with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.807 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, 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 21.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Autarkheian economy, worth 319 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 extensive. Average income is an impressive 176,554 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 799,873 per year while the poor average 23,911, a ratio of 33.5 to 1.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. 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 3,263rd in the world and 43rd in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 13,163.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
