The Nomadic Refugee Group of Battlegroup Anna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Admiral Henrietta Lutzow with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 1.873 billion citizens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colony Ship Presidia County. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Battlegroup Annan economy, worth 18.5 trillion ration chits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 9,883 ration chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, Battlegroup Anna has designated Colony Ship Presidia County as its capital city, Admiral Henrietta Lutzow has just been declared ruler of Battlegroup Anna in an international press conference, and Cult of the Three Saints has been named as Battlegroup Anna's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Battlegroup Anna's national animal is the Housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Three Saints.

Battlegroup Anna is ranked 238,972nd in the world and 1st in Pilsudski Hall for Smartest Citizens, with 13.27 quips per hour.
