Antarcticao

Population110 million

CurrencyShmeckl
AnimalAlligator

The United States of Antarcticao is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The democratic population of 110 million Antarcticaoans 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Antarcticaoan economy, worth 6.64 trillion Shmeckls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,347 Shmeckls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, economists claim no news is good news, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antarcticao's national animal is the Alligator.

Antarcticao is ranked 49,901st in the world and 40th in Ridgefield for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,873.73 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
