Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The East Pacific



Population6.739 billion



The Empire of Akorial is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.739 billion Akorialians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lareliw. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Akorialian economy, worth 716 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,320 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, Leader's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akorial's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akorial is ranked 236,731st in the world and 8,186th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -11.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
