The Republic of Antiyard is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.688 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 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth 985 trillion Konigs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 210,126 Konigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, Tigers are considered a delicacy, and unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers. 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 6,009th in the world and 356th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.37 Years.
