The Fallen empire of Ancapstands is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Victoria II with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 854 million Ancaps are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of exdist. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ancapstandsian economy, worth 164 trillion Zixes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 193,135 Zixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, property owners are terrified of pigeons nesting in their buildings, workers' complaints never reach central planning, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancapstands's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ancapstands is ranked 97,795th in the world and 46th in First World Order for Most Influential, scoring 133 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
