The Federal Republic of Antef is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander 'John' Tormond with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.564 billion Antefians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Antefian economy, worth 700 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 196,638 Antes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antef's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Antef is ranked 31,091st in the world and 981st in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 487.1994798588 Days.
