The Humoungous and Stradivarious of Antahbrantahstan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sri Ratu Djasmi Sudirohusodo with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.166 billion Anturians 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oreo City. The average income tax rate is 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Anturian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Oreos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,476 Oreos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Antahbrantahstan, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antahbrantahstan's national animal is the Chocolate Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is All Religions.

Antahbrantahstan is ranked 5,058th in the world and 126th in the West Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 72.67 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
