LeaderThe Great Gazo


The Republic of AnnaK is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Great Gazo with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.338 billion AnnaKians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bedrock. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient AnnaKian economy, worth 684 trillion Clams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,267 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, nobody is quite sure what the government's last policy decision was but fans are saying it'll make AnnaK great again, staffers take uppers in the old upper house chamber, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AnnaK's national animal is the Triceratops, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

AnnaK is ranked 219,844th in the world and 928th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
