Population8.04 billion



The Republic of Antiyard is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.04 billion Antiyardians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,614 trillion Konigs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,841 Konigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Antiyard, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Antiyard, and grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work. 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 89,470th in the world and 4,277th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
