The Principality of Ahntong is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Prince Ahntong Torrathan-Janmaren with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.68 billion Ahntongians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Environment, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vijaya. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ahntongian economy, worth 252 trillion Purple Shells a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,491 Purple Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
A government program is underway to revitalize Ahntong's beaches, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ahntong's national animal is the Golden Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Cruor and Daemus.
