The Dictatorship of Ankeneer is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bismarck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.537 billion Ankeneerians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankeneer City. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ankeneerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,108 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 244,323 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

New religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Ankeneerian Space Agency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ankeneer's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christanity.

Ankeneer is ranked 159,411th in the world and 21st in Union of Nationalists for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 12.85 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
