Ananke II

Population35.537 billion

CapitalCasterly Rock
Leaderthe Queen of Thorns


The Flower Girl of Ananke II is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Queen of Thorns with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 35.537 billion Anankeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casterly Rock. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Anankean economy, worth a remarkable 5,065 trillion kroner a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,538 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anankean police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, preservative-laden Anankean cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime is totally unknown. Ananke II's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ananke II is ranked 103,622nd in the world and 645th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,427.93 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
