The Dux Headquarters of Annihilators of Chan Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nickolas Spitzberg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.737 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 91.4%.

The all-consuming Annihilators of Chan Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,822 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 132,652 Shiny Things, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 725,036 per year while the poor average 12,407, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

Children keel over while singing "Nickolas Spitzberg Gives Us the Water of Life", military spending recently hit a new high, the Access Denied XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, and citizens compete to guess the time between the royal lady's contractions. 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 207,867th in the world and 507th in NationStates for Safest, scoring 3.86 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
