Population6.643 billion



The Republic of Antiyard is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.643 billion Antiyardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caramba. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Konigs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 207,555 Konigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Caramba, and you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antiyard's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Antiyard is ranked 127,892nd in the world and 5,722nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.44 on the Rand Index.
