The Settled State of Antarctic SARNZ is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by CE Tenzing Shah with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 3.334 billion Cold Ones are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott Base. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cold One economy, worth 436 trillion Spicy Turnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,052 Spicy Turnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antarctic SARNZ's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sac Milk.

Antarctic SARNZ is ranked 198,894th in the world and 199th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
