The Republic of Achiotopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Achilleus with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.329 billion Achiotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Achiopolis. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Achiotopian economy, worth a remarkable 9,171 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 348,351 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime is totally unknown. Achiotopia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Achiotopia is ranked 353rd in the world and 7th in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 17,070.29 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
