Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 22.22 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 12,641 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 568,944 Demes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,455,635 per year while the poor average 83,973, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, much of Anaxphonia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS. 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 129,216th in the world and 4th in Spoiled Cats for Most Devout, with 9.3 Prayers Per Hour.
