The Rogue Nation of Aichaku is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 250 million Aichakuans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The all-consuming Aichakuan economy, worth 19.1 trillion Yen a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 76,208 Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,958 per year while the poor average 16,255, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

The nation's cuisine is the laughing stock of South Pacific, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, third world countries are rich in "I Love Aichaku City" t-shirts, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Aichaku's national animal is the Momoiro Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Aichaku is ranked 145,850th in the world and 72nd in South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.93 Obesity Rate.
