The Principality of Animalidae is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, cynical population of 226 million Animaliums are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.5%.

The powerhouse Animalidaean economy, worth 17.0 trillion Brown leaves a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,052 Brown leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and smoking is banned in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Animalidae's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Animalidae is ranked 98,525th in the world and 3,971st in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 35.51 on the Hayek Index.
