The Corporatocracy of Anemone Reef is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister CEO with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.922 billion Reefians 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 minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Anemone Reefian economy, worth a remarkable 8,402 trillion Sovereign Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 603,559 Sovereign Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,134,948 per year while the poor average 62,858, a ratio of 49.9 to 1.

Citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst Sea Anemones. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anemone Reef's national animal is the Sea Anemone, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Industrialism.

Anemone Reef is ranked 16th in the world and 3rd in Capitalist Paradise for Rudest Citizens, with 1,671.19 Insults Per Minute.
