The Tsardom of Accipitridia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rythe Ry'Kalan with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.409 billion Orinthians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viessia Metro. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 607 trillion Gold Credits 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 252,299 Gold Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, Accipitridian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Double-Headed Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Accipitrid Orthodoxy.

Accipitridia is ranked 153,226th in the world and 71st in Institute of Cellulose for Most Extreme, scoring 13.88 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
