The Negative Dialectician of The Antichrist is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Overman with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.838 billion Antichristians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magog. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Antichristian economy, worth 118 trillion 666s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Gambling, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,653 666s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Computers are widely considered to be the "devil magic of heathens", the nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout The Antichrist after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Antichrist's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Neoplatonic Theurgy.

The Antichrist is ranked 205,160th in the world and 4,633rd in Artificial Solar System for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
