The Creaking Casino Floors of Anathema Armaments is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anathema Armament's CEO Vincent Anathema with a fair hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.545 billion Anathemagicians 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, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matériel Credit Forge District. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Anathemagician economy, worth a remarkable 8,179 trillion Matériel Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 494,352 Matériel Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,610,969 per year while the poor average 4,693, a ratio of 982 to 1.

It's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, the phrase "you might think that but I couldn't possibly comment" is the closest you'll get to a straight answer from Anathemagician politicians, oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anathema Armaments's national animal is the Shrieking Hellfire Ghost, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Matériel Credit Bank of Anathema.

Anathema Armaments is ranked 1,025th in the world and 1st in The Long Forgotten Name Nobody Remembers for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,853.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
