The Empire of Acronis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Mital II with a fair hand, and notable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.65 billion Acronians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaram. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Acronian economy, worth 207 trillion Nashdats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 56,722 Nashdats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety, on-duty Air Acronis flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, skateparks can be found in every city, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Acronians any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acronis's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Akronism.

Acronis is ranked 197,463rd in the world and 7,665th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
