The United Imperial Kingdom of Antrema is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Andrew Antrema with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 16.329 billion Antremians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Platinum. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Antremian economy, worth 981 trillion Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,132 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, the bum of King Andrew Antrema has been voted the most recognisable in Antrema, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antrema's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Messianic.

Antrema is ranked 37,537th in the world and 23rd in The Versutian Federation for Most Influential, scoring 497 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
