The Martian city state of Ancapstands is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 607 million Ancaps are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ozis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ancapstandsian economy, worth 99.7 trillion Zixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,203 Zixes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 904,877 per year while the poor average 15,086, a ratio of 60.0 to 1.

Vacationing Ancaps expect to be treated as royalty, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Ancaps can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancapstands's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ancapstands is ranked 107,033rd in the world and 3,608th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,344.44 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
