The Economic Commonwealth of Anungu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.107 billion Anunguans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ngunnawal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Anunguan economy, worth 773 trillion Anunguan e-dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 249,016 Anunguan e-dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 835,746 per year while the poor average 55,061, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anungu's national animal is the Bird of Paradise, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sedevacantism.

Anungu is ranked 243,493rd in the world and 9,375th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.48 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
