Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 29.739 billion Anti-Goatsackians 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 4,219 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,876 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Billy's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime is totally unknown. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 74,070th in the world and 2,424th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 36.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
