The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.108 billion Anaxphonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solonopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Anaxphonian economy, worth an astonishing 14,803 trillion Demes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 567,016 Demes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,310,610 per year while the poor average 20,687, a ratio of 208 to 1.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, rioting and unrest sweep the nation, hay has been added to school cafeteria menus, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anaxphonia's national animal is the Red-eared Slider, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hellenismos.

Anaxphonia is ranked 151,205th in the world and 6th in Spoiled Cats for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.63 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
