The Union of Socialist States of East Antarctica is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lucy Valverde with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.337 billion East Antarcticans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient East Antarctican economy, worth a remarkable 2,085 trillion Antarctic rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,406 Antarctic rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, Lucy Valverde is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist States of East Antarctica's national animal is the Weddell seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Socialist States of East Antarctica is ranked 402nd in the world and 11th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.44 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
