The Peoples Federal Commonwealth of Ankuran is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Premier de Vos and Chancellor Jansen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.14 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 large, outspoken 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 2,479 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,305 buillons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Ankurani, dining out often involves jack-booted cottontails on the plate no matter what you order, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ankuran's national animal is the jack-booted cottontail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Caodaism.

Ankuran is ranked 108,389th in the world and 236th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 601.09 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
