The Republic of New Antarcticania is a very large, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 152 million New Antarctican 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Antarctican economy, worth 8.69 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 57,200 ration units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", builders across New Antarcticania are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Antarcticania's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Antarcticania is ranked 219,402nd in the world and 936th in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 3 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
