The Red of Accipitridia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Rykios Khyn with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 944 million Accipitrids are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konopolis. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 155 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 164,365 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, Accipitrids are unrivalled in obstacle courses, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Red Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Accipitridia is ranked 124,429th in the world and 5,758th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 699.52 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
