The Peoples Republic of Independent Antartica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fish Fingers with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 2.334 billion Antarticans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belmont. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antratican economy, worth 381 trillion Artic Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 163,494 Artic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the endangered saltwater humpback Penguin is only seen in captivity programs, pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, and workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independent Antartica's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Independent Antartica is ranked 217,073rd in the world and 8,765th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -159.9 on the Hayek Index.
