The Dux Headquarters of Annihilators of Chan Island is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Nickolas Spitzberg with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.338 billion Annihilators are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Access Denied. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The all-consuming Annihilators of Chan Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion Shiny Things a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 131,656 Shiny Things, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 399,147 per year while the poor average 33,769, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, corrective labour camps either end political dissent or kill the dissenters, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Annihilators of Chan Island's national animal is the Axe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Great Hatred.

Annihilators of Chan Island is ranked 160,119th in the world and 14th in Arthenia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -165.85 on the Hayek Index.
