OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Democratic Republic of Akelele is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 555 million Akeleleans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martyrdom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The all-consuming Akelelean economy, worth 45.6 trillion Aours a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 82,089 Aours, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,301 per year while the poor average 11,707, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

Companies balk at paying their workers, being dead no longer has any benefits, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Leader wears an armoured gauntlet, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime is moderate. Akelele's national animal is the Orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Akelele is ranked 38,149th in the world and 957th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 13.29 Obesity Rate.
