The Sultanate of Antahbrantahstan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by PM Malka Weissman with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.16 billion Anturians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oreo City. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anturian economy, worth a remarkable 2,021 trillion Oreos a year, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,622 Oreos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Anturians, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antahbrantahstan's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is All Religions.

Antahbrantahstan is ranked 12,687th in the world and 257th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 153,622.17 Standard Monetary Units.
