The Municipalities of Antarctica

Population175 million

AnimalWeddell Seal

The Federation of The Municipalities of Antarctica is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 175 million Antarcticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Antarctican economy, worth 7.39 trillion Municipal Antarctic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 42,206 Municipal Antarctic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Municipalities of Antarctica's national animal is the Weddell Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Municipalities of Antarctica is ranked 119,421st in the world and 5,433rd in the Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 460.95 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
