The Federation of Akwinem is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 447 million Akwinemians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noteville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The very strong Akwinemian economy, worth 34.6 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 77,401 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 235,727 per year while the poor average 19,724, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, people are always complaining about dam builders running behind schedule, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Akwinem's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Akwinem is ranked 162,957th in the world and 5,421st in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
