The Democratic States of New Akkala is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.008 billion New Akkalans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North New Akkala City. The average income tax rate is 70.9%.

The all-consuming New Akkalan economy, worth 483 trillion Monies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,538 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and Leader has just been declared ruler of New Akkala in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Akkala's national animal is the Siberian Husky, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Akkala is ranked 99,288th in the world and 4,049th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,703.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
