The Peoples Federal Commonwealth of Ankuran is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Premier de Vos and Chancellor Jansen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.789 billion Ankurani love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Région d'Angora-Capitale. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ankuran economy, worth a remarkable 3,350 trillion buillons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 261,979 buillons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, nation-building is the new national pastime, the nation has abandoned Brasilistan to its fate, and foreign leaders are advising that Premier de Vos and Chancellor Jansen's letters must have gotten lost in the mail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ankuran's national animal is the jackbooted cottontail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ietsism.

Ankuran is ranked 1,684th in the world and 13th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.69 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
