The Enlightened Crownship of Annexandria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Her Majesty Katherina I of Rosenbrandt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.269 billion Annexandrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 36.8%.

The thriving Annexandrian economy, worth 252 trillion Rubbles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,501 Rubbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, the monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Annexandria's national animal is the pink dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is non-religious.

Annexandria is ranked 80,971st in the world and 3,084th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,376.41 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
