The Democratic Republic of Anousland is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.003 billion Anouses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctium. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anouslandian economy, worth 369 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,673 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. Anousland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anousland is ranked 13,587th in the world and 462nd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 216.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
