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 notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 30.24 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 frighteningly efficient Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 4,327 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 143,117 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, carefully-staged grief is displayed by Billy after national disasters, and only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Billy on Anti-Goatsack's coulrophobia epidemic. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 141,658th in the world and 4,028th in Osiris for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 14.04 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
