The Federation of AxeCapital is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Franklin Underwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.432 billion Axelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of AxeCapital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Axelian economy, worth 466 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 191,652 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,012,759 per year while the poor average 19,260, a ratio of 52.6 to 1.

Rare steaks seem even bluer now, police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign, on streets of broken glass people are being murdered for their faith, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of AxeCapital. Crime is totally unknown. AxeCapital's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

AxeCapital is ranked 59,454th in the world and 664th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.74 bananas ingested per day.
