The Holy Empire of Achkaerin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Peter Azurewind with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.631 billion Achkaerinese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valtheim. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Achkaerinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion Isos a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,837 Isos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Peter Azurewind's eyes only', many marriages go virtually unconsummated, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achkaerin's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Namis.

Achkaerin is ranked 215,618th in the world and 28th in Independent Order for Most Primitive, scoring -160.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
