The Greater Republic of New Antarcticania is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, avant-garde cinema, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.775 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slavidad. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Antarctican economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Antarctican Rubles 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 159,247 Antarctican Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, and what's in your genes matters more than what's in your jeans. 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 Democratic Socialism.

New Antarcticania is ranked 5,468th in the world and 295th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 113.63 law-abiding acts per hour.
