The Empire of AKK is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kroll with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.324 billion Akkians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krochensk. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Akkian economy, worth 718 trillion Krols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 63,408 Krols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, Air AKK tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AKK's national animal is the Rabbit.

AKK is ranked 74,107th in the world and 4th in Mapperdonia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,798.11 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
