The Economic Commonwealth of Anungu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Chancellor with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.915 billion Anunguans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ngunnawal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Anunguan economy, worth 346 trillion Anunguan e-dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 181,169 Anunguan e-dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns. Crime is relatively low. Anungu's national animal is the Bird of Paradise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sedevacantism.

Anungu is ranked 5,053rd in the world and 235th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 131.61 on the Hayek Index.
