The Cetaceous State of Antorcticus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Orcinus Orca with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 1.949 billion Antorcticans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cetacea. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Antorcticusian economy, worth 249 trillion orcagons 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 127,769 orcagons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character, funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. Antorcticus's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Antorcticus is ranked 10,943rd in the world and 1st in Northern Vastness for Smartest Citizens, with 88.28 quips per hour.
