The Free Land of Antalayana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme council of the elders with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.498 billion Antalayanans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanakalaya. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antalayanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,590 trillion Yanas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,418 Yanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and the big red machine has ground to a halt. Crime is totally unknown. Antalayana's national animal is the Antabear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Antalayana is ranked 1,271st in the world and 46th in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 212.83 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
