The Republic of Antiyard is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 493 million Antiyardians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caramba. The average income tax rate is 58.7%.
The all-consuming Antiyardian economy, worth 66.7 trillion Konigs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,264 Konigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Antiyard's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
