The Authoritarian Kingdom of Akwinem is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Seth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.496 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Seth City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.2%.

The strong Akwinemian economy, worth 129 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 86,587 Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, the clergy of Leaderism remains a single-sex institution, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, and parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Akwinem's national animal is the Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Akwinem is ranked 95,632nd in the world and 562nd in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 129 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
