Achigan Lake

Population10.397 billion

The Queen's State of Achigan Lake is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.397 billion Lakers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The strong Achigan Lakean economy, worth 601 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 57,818 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 393,096 per year while the poor average 3,106, a ratio of 126 to 1.

All tariffs have been abolished, deer are considered a delicacy, Achigan Lake's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and Achigan Lake has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Achigan Lake's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Achigan Lake is ranked 30,888th in the world and 2nd in Brisbane for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,293.64 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
