The Queen's State of Acrewood is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.493 billion Acrewoodians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The thriving Acrewoodian economy, worth 984 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 48,019 betales, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,117 per year while the poor average 3,296, a ratio of 90.7 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, Acrewood has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Acrewood in an international press conference, and none has been named as Acrewood's national religion. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Acrewood's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Acrewood is ranked 197,563rd in the world and 8th in Beijing for Safest, scoring 9.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
