The Sovereign Empire of Anbia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Sabriél II of House Baillë with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.496 billion Anbians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kest. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anbian economy, worth a remarkable 3,375 trillion anmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 217,831 anmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Judges are all-powerful, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anbia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is seriseloria.

Anbia is ranked 7,543rd in the world and 478th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 165.98 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
