The Free Archipelagan Federation of Anonymous Islands is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paula Maria Osmondson with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.601 billion AIslanders 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headon City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Anonymous Islands's national animal is the two headed ferret, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is some crap but at least not foreign crap, and its currency is the Anonymous credit.

Anonymous Islands is ranked 284th in Balder and 5,235th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
