The Corporatocracy of Anemone Reef is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.283 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 are ignored. 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 7,173 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 Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 584,052 Sovereign Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,526,455 per year while the poor average 43,392, a ratio of 81.3 to 1.

The nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. 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 206,073rd in the world and 327th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -18.88 Effective Tax Rate.
