The Free Land of Akabusi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.044 billion Akabusians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Akabusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,761 trillion Derek Redmonds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 431,178 Derek Redmonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,193,265 per year while the poor average 17,399, a ratio of 183 to 1.

Internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Akabusi's national animal is the Roger Black, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Akabusi is ranked 125,588th in the world and 4,755th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 46.79 on the Human Development Index.
