The Corporatocracy of Anemone Reef is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mister CEO with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.209 billion Reefians 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 minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Anemone Reefian economy, worth a remarkable 9,368 trillion Sovereign Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 616,009 Sovereign Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,873,216 per year while the poor average 41,271, a ratio of 93.8 to 1.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Anemone Reef's many privately-owned prisons, 'Anarchy in Anemone Reef!' is a popular TV program in foreign countries, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anemone Reef's national animal is the Sea Anemone, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Industrialism.

Anemone Reef is ranked 93rd in the world and 5th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 66,575.26 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
