The United Clans of Antarsia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Donar Svellhammar with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.89 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skylance City. The average income tax rate is 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. Antarsia's national animal is the Svål Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Airn.
