The Free Land of Antityranicals is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Patricius Regulus with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.477 billion Antityranicals enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Antityranical economy, worth 662 trillion 24-Karat Gold Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 267,408 24-Karat Gold Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,687,700 per year while the poor average 17,738, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Antityranicals's national animal is the emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Antityranicals is ranked 7,483rd in the world and 1st in New Meritocrats for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,924.68 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
