The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.162 billion Anaxphonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, 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 11,630 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 549,601 Demes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The children of Anaxphonia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the only places to see Red-eared Sliders now are at local zoos, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. 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 201st in the world and 1st in Spoiled Cats for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 959.89 on the Hayek Index.
