The Socialist Mazicracy of Antarritah is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ludwik Bilzek with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.11 billion Antarritans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kefaela. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antarritan economy, worth 778 trillion Frāgues a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,444 Frāgues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, many friends and relatives of Ludwik Bilzek have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown. Antarritah's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

Antarritah is ranked 72,037th in the world and 3,372nd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 22.49 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
