The Empire of The Anathema is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.899 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Anatheman economy, worth a remarkable 2,502 trillion Throne Gelts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 281,244 Throne Gelts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 939,198 per year while the poor average 62,654, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

The Emperor goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Anathema's national animal is the Thunder Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Anathema is ranked 17,488th in the world and 39th in Wintreath for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 18,519.43 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
