The Kingdom of Antharas is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 7.661 billion Antharasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CrowStone. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Antharasian economy, worth 313 trillion Compasses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,886 Compasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antharas's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Antharas is ranked 158,931st in the world and 336th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.81 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
