The Empire of Akorial is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 2.745 billion Akorialians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lareliw. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akorialian economy, worth 264 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,332 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akorial's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akorial is ranked 8,925th in the world and 258th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.75 on the Human Development Index.
