The People's Republic of New Antarcticania is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 699 million New Antarctican are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vostroya. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Antarctican economy, worth 82.6 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 118,236 ration units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and people talk about their libido as if it were an STD. 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 12,539th in the world and 218th in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,929.37 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
