The Grand Kingdom of Ancientania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Trevor XVI with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.332 billion Ancientanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiseru. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ancientanii economy, worth 331 trillion Grey fish cat feathers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,961 Grey fish cat feathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", surveillance cameras are banned, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancientania's national animal is the Grey fish cat, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Naturism.

Ancientania is ranked 171,303rd in the world and 206th in the Obsidian Highlands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,457.48 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
