The Protectorate of Anexora is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Administrator Orra Relixia with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.166 billion Anexorans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 0. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anexoran economy, worth a remarkable 1,921 trillion Anexoran Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 371,896 Anexoran Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anexora's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Banned.

Anexora is ranked 54,408th in the world and 2,103rd in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,567.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
