The Empire of Aclia is a tiny, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and Commerce are secondary priorities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A large private sector is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Pizza Delivery.
Elections have been outlawed. Crime is moderate. Aclia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the kassa.
