Regional Influence: Envoy


The Republic of Achlys 53 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.427 billion Achlys 53ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43.1%.

The powerhouse Achlys 53ian economy, worth 333 trillion salts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,188 salts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", the government insists that a ghost voted ten million times in the last election, and the entire entry for Achlys 53 in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achlys 53's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achlys 53 is ranked 227,905th in the world and 3rd in World Assembly Security Council for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
