The Armed Republic of Anaxphonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anaxphone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.875 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, 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 12,369 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 565,482 Demes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,260,803 per year while the poor average 95,028, a ratio of 23.8 to 1.

Suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 346th in the world and 1st in Spoiled Cats for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 36,077.63 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
