The Republic of Achatina is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.465 billion Achatinans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Achatinan economy, worth 187 trillion 9003s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,235 9003s, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, gun-wielding gangsters sometimes deal death from as far as ten paces away, Leader's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achatina's national animal is the 9003, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Achatina is ranked 131,358th in the world and 4,386th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,016.52 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
