Population6.838 billion



The Republic of Antiyard is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.838 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caramba. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,411 trillion Konigs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 206,394 Konigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. 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 83,968th in the world and 4,009th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,253.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
