The Greedland of Anaxonia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by TyrAno-sama with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.619 billion ventripotents are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Welfare and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Claw. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ventripotent economy, worth a remarkable 9,163 trillion Denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 423,844 Denarii, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,969,959 per year while the poor average 3,812, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, Mimic sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and TyrAno-sama has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space. 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. Anaxonia's national animal is the mimic, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is TyrAno-mania.

Anaxonia is ranked 67th in the world and 1st in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 53,092.26 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
