The Federal Republic of Antef is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alex 'John' Cena with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.115 billion Antefians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allia. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antefian economy, worth 150 trillion Antes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,337 Antes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime is totally unknown. Antef's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Antef is ranked 161,529th in the world and 8,681st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -194.03 on the Hayek Index.
