The Commonwealth of Antipodean Continent is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 219 million Antipodes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Antipodean economy, worth 3.56 trillion golds 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 16,253 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antipodean Continent's national animal is the hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Antipodean Continent is ranked 141,348th in the world and 6,054th in the Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.31 Crimes Per Hour.
