The Democratic States of New Akkala is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.112 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 68.9%.

The all-consuming New Akkalan economy, worth 300 trillion Monies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,656 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. 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 128,723rd in the world and 5,224th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -39.8 on the Hayek Index.
