The Concerning Colony of Deep Antartica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Riku with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.181 billion Deep Antarticans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iciclia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Deep Antartican economy, worth 168 trillion Antars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 142,706 Antars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 976,179 per year while the poor average 7,525, a ratio of 129 to 1.

Labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and calling tech support mid-shootout is a common occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Deep Antartica's national animal is the Warden, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Deep Antartica is ranked 14,914th in the world and 1st in West Antartica for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 5,354.42 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
