The Free Land of Antalayana is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme council of the elders with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.229 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 large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanakalaya. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antalayanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,962 trillion Yanas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,738 Yanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime is totally unknown. Antalayana's national animal is the Antabear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Antalayana is ranked 75,711th in the world and 2,486th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 21.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
