The Sovereign State of Axcalia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Marcus Veygrand with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.626 billion Axcalians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Petersburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.8%.

The powerhouse Axcalian economy, worth 141 trillion euros 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, 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 86,827 euros, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Army mostly consists of colonial subjects, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, and citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Axcalia's national animal is the Iberian eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Axcalia is ranked 189,729th in the world and 2nd in Interstellar Federation of Nations for Best Weather, with 95 meters of sunlight.
