The Region Wandering State of Antarctic SARNZ is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by CEA Tenzin Shah with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.746 billion Cold Ones are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott Base. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cold One economy, worth 193 trillion Spicy Turnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,091 Spicy Turnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, interest in globalism never flags, and Cold Ones submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antarctic SARNZ's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Antarctic SARNZ is ranked 164,470th in the world and 6,988th in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.26 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
