The Authoritarian Kingdom of Akwinem is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Seth with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, strictly enforced bedtime, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.95 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 large, 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. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Akwinemian economy, worth 392 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 99,422 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, rural Akwinemians stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, and the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 259,651st in the world and 1,284th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 0.32 quips per hour.
