The People's Republic of My Anxiety is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.87 billion My Anxietyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse My Anxietyian economy, worth 185 trillion Depressoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,024 Depressoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. My Anxiety's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

My Anxiety is ranked 3,150th in the world and 135th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 13,577.27 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
