The Commonwealth of Dolphin-Antarctica is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Scaloni slotka with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.33 billion antarcticans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of fort slotka. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dolphin-Antarctican economy, worth 164 trillion polands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,803 polands, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, the tenet of free speech is held dear, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dolphin-Antarctica's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is antarcicism.

Dolphin-Antarctica is ranked 241,929th in the world and 7,158th in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -14 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
