The People's Republic of Anacomia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.583 billion Anacomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Anacomian economy, worth 129 trillion marshes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 28,189 marshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anacomia's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Anacomia is ranked 215,974th in the world and 147th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,562.88 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
