The All-Devouring Kraken of Aki Zeta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sid Meier with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.771 billion Telepaths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrtle Beach. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aki Zetan economy, worth a remarkable 7,058 trillion gold coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 229,380 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. 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. Aki Zeta's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is secular humanism.

Aki Zeta is ranked 25,254th in the world and 1,088th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,749.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
