The Settled State of Antarctic SARNZ is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by CE Tenzing Shah with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.73 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 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cold One economy, worth 517 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,648 Spicy Turnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, the Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork, refugees from other nations are flocking to Antarctic SARNZ's border, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Scott Base. 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 218,111th in the world and 155th in Social Technocratic Union for Rudest Citizens, with 6.41 Insults Per Minute.
