The Sultanate of Antahbrantahstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by PM Malka Weissman with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.19 billion Anturians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anturian economy, worth a remarkable 2,280 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 common. Average income is an impressive 150,150 Oreos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All Religions now admits men and women into its clergy, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antahbrantahstan's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is All Religions.

Antahbrantahstan is ranked 5,029th in the world and 124th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.99 on the Human Development Index.
