The Confederacy of Anmola is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 580 million Anmolans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiachington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Anmolan economy, worth 80.8 trillion Tusks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,290 Tusks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 972,708 per year while the poor average 6,883, a ratio of 141 to 1.

Childish pranks are no laughing matter, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anmola's national animal is the Walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Anmola is ranked 16,103rd in the world and 231st in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 139,290.66 Standard Monetary Units.
