Achlys 16

The Republic of Achlys 16 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 793 million Achlys 16ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.7%.

The thriving Achlys 16ian economy, worth 67.2 trillion salts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,740 salts, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, the government snoops on private internet connections, every workday begins with group therapy, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Achlys 16 in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achlys 16's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Achlys 16 is ranked 76,558th in the world and 1,100th in Artificial Solar System for Most Developed, scoring 59.23 on the Human Development Index.
