The Aderan Republic of Acroticus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Praetor Arriston Andros with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 19.179 billion Acroticians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Therinia. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Acroticusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,152 trillion Ialiras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 216,535 Ialiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Acroticusian Liberator", physics lessons mostly involve talking about emotional management techniques, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime is totally unknown. Acroticus's national animal is the Zaire Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Acroticus is ranked 50,949th in the world and 10th in The Commonwealth Society for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,137.03 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
