National Republic of Antagoria

Population753 million

The National Republic of National Republic of Antagoria is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 753 million Eastern Antagorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fascianta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.9%.

The all-consuming Eastern Antagorian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Antagoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 95,711 Antagoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 270,171 per year while the poor average 27,141, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Eastern Antagorian Desert, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Emperor Penguins and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. National Republic of Antagoria's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

National Republic of Antagoria is ranked 72,138th in the world and 31st in Arbor for Healthiest Citizens, with 2 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
