The Republic of Antiyard is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.645 billion Antiyardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,895 trillion Konigs a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 212,183 Konigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Feeling like a winner comes at a price, Caramba has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antiyard's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Antiyard is ranked 16,249th in the world and 413th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,034.1 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
