The Sweet and Snarky Community of The Anti-Social Socialists is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.168 billion Anti-Social Socialists love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Randominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Anti-Social Socialistian economy, worth a remarkable 1,521 trillion Lyres 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,239 Lyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Randominion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Anti-Social Socialists's national animal is the Lyrebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sweet and Sour Secularism.

The Anti-Social Socialists is ranked 153,387th in the world and 6,054th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -81 on the Rand Index.
