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.
