The Eternal Empire of Accipitridia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrea Khyn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.552 billion Accipitrids are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 283 trillion 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 impressive 182,884 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Red Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Accipitridia is ranked 163,547th in the world and 266th in First World Order for Safest, scoring 49.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
