Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.541 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 12,040 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 558,971 Demes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,630,604 per year while the poor average 151,407, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Bars are packed at all hours, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and rioting and unrest sweep the nation. 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 1,801st in the world and 2nd in Spoiled Cats for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
