The Greater People's union of New Antarcticania is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.386 billion Antarcticans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vostroya. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Antarctican economy, worth 533 trillion ration units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 157,648 ration units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, there's nothing more rock-and-roll than absolute sobriety, and murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Antarcticania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.

New Antarcticania is ranked 264,328th in the world and 54th in Greater Dienstad for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -300.2 on the Hayek Index.
