The Free Land of Antityranicals is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archduke Patricius Regulus with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.513 billion Antityranicals enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Antityranical economy, worth 671 trillion 24-Karat Gold Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 267,408 24-Karat Gold Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,687,700 per year while the poor average 17,738, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Antityranicals's national animal is the emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Antityranicals is ranked 201,878th in the world and 3rd in New Meritocrats for Least Corrupt Governments, with 22.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
