Antipodean Continent

The Commonwealth of Antipodean Continent is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 598 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, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olvia. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Antipodean economy, worth 10.3 trillion Antipodean Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 17,300 Antipodean Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 196,419th in the world and 9,222nd in the Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.98 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
