The Democratic Republic of Anousland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Elizabeth Thatcher with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.448 billion Anouses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctium. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Anouslandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,530 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 237,329 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, Prime Minister Elizabeth Thatcher's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and military pistols are more secure than the national treasury. Crime is totally unknown. Anousland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Anousland is ranked 2,451st in the world and 119th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 18,336.57 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
