The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.696 billion Anaxphonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solonopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Anaxphonian economy, worth an astonishing 12,225 trillion Demes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 563,471 Demes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,953,171 per year while the poor average 118,674, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, 'Anarchy in Anaxphonia!' is a popular TV program in foreign countries, disputed territories across Spoiled Cats are being claimed by Anaxphonian college students, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anaxphonia's national animal is the Red-eared Slider, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hellenismos.

Anaxphonia is ranked 43rd in the world and 1st in Spoiled Cats for Smartest Citizens, with 382.66 Quips Per Hour.
