The Republic of Antiyard is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.995 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 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Antiyardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion Konigs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 210,877 Konigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. 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 3,568th in the world and 201st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.09 on the Human Development Index.
