LeaderKing Mital II


The Empire of Acronis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Mital II with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.62 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 Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaram. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Acronian economy, worth 205 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 56,734 Nashdats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, and there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days. 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 32,633rd in the world and 1,075th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,464.33 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
