The Creaking Casino Floors of Anathema Armaments is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anathema Armament's CEO Vincent Anathema with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.893 billion Anathemagicians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 7,198 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 483,335 Matériel Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,840,274 per year while the poor average 14,588, a ratio of 263 to 1.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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 182nd in the world and 1st in The Long Forgotten Name Nobody Remembers for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 30,537.61 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
