The Democratic Republic of Anousland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Elizabeth Thatcher with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.453 billion Anouses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctium. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Anouslandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,535 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 237,977 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Sanctium as a backdrop, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown. Anousland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Anousland is ranked 91,147th in the world and 4,475th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.39 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
