The Grand Duchy of Antesity is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 137 million Antesityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Industry and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Antesityian economy, worth 6.09 trillion thalrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 44,448 thalrs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 187,525 per year while the poor average 6,823, a ratio of 27.5 to 1.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Antesity's national animal is the eagle.

Antesity is ranked 26,929th in the world and 1,253rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,373.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
