The Democratic Republic of Anousland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, public floggings, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.616 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 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 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anouslandian economy, worth 275 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,248 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime is totally unknown. Anousland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anousland is ranked 155,059th in the world and 8,093rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
