Antarctica is a parliamentary democracy of 66 million people. It is governed by the Grand Council, whose Standing Councillor effectively serves as leader. The Antarctic Constitution, meanwhile, is protected by the Grand Tribunal, the nation's highest court. The peace and amity of Antarctic international relations is also guaranteed by its Constitution, and no military is needed. The Antarctic religion is a reformed branch of Hinduism, with a humanistic attitude and love for personal and societal freedom. Between the Free Republic's innovative and generous social policies and the network of motivational rules that guide the private sector, the Antarctic standard of living is enjoyed by all its people, and the economy is well-behaved without detracting from its power and efficiency. Looking back on their continent's violent and hateful past, the Antarctic people continue their most dedicated efforts to build a better future for themselves and all generations to come.
