The Democratic Republic of Antarctican Emigrants is a very large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 150 million Antarctican Emigrantsians 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 Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Antarctican Emigrantsian economy, worth 1.42 trillion Social Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,444 Social Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antarctican Emigrants's national animal is the Love Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Antarctican Emigrants is ranked 181,843rd in the world and 192nd in Arcesia for Most Average, scoring 30.31 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
