The Hypnos Worshippers of Antarctic SARNZ is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by CE Tenzing Wangdi with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.015 billion Cold Ones are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott Base. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cold One economy, worth 719 trillion Spicy Turnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,462 Spicy Turnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antarctic SARNZ's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Antarctic SARNZ is ranked 239,113th in the world and 117th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Primitive, scoring -467.66 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
