The Colony of Communist Ant Farm is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Antonina with a fair hand, and remarkable for its enforced nudity, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 19.663 billion Communist Ant Farmians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterranea. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Communist Ant Farmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 trillion Larvas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 61,427 Larvas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Communist Ant Farm's national animal is the Queen Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atemporal Swarmism.

Communist Ant Farm is ranked 275,196th in the world and 13th in The New Meritocracy for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -12.26 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
