The Imperial Order of Antarcticao is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor David II and Empress Valerie with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.311 billion Antarcticaoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acsalon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Antarcticaoan economy, worth 294 trillion Shmeckls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,435 Shmeckls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,377 per year while the poor average 35,363, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Antarcticao is ranked 153,063rd in the world and 56th in Ridgefield for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -77.26 on the Hayek Index.
