Leadera benevolent artificial intelligence


The Free Land of Akeland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by a benevolent artificial intelligence with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.012 billion Akelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parankuu. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,217 trillion Elekas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,578 Elekas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that a benevolent artificial intelligence wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, Akelandians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies. Crime is totally unknown. Akeland's national animal is the slowworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akeland is ranked 709th in the world and 11th in Europeia for Best Weather, with 763 Meters Of Sunlight.
