The Republic of Antiyard is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.471 billion Antiyardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caramba. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,749 trillion Konigs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,542 Konigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, much of Antiyard's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antiyard's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Antiyard is ranked 150,002nd in the world and 6,235th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 434.44 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
