The Republic Of Akanalid

Population857 million



The Republic of The Republic Of Akanalid is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 857 million Akadians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inferis. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Republic Of Akanalidian economy, worth 84.2 trillion Kazzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 98,286 Kazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prank shows are so hot right now, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Republic Of Akanalid's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Republic Of Akanalid is ranked 120,154th in the world and 185th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Economic Output, with 84.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
