The Incorporated States of Antartica and Oceania is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 419 million Antarctica and Oceanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Antarctica and Oceanian economy, worth 31.7 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 75,620 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and food shipments to Brasilistan have been replaced with DIY fishing rods and unintelligible instruction manuals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antartica and Oceania's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Antartica and Oceania is ranked 12,616th in the world and 432nd in the Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,454.97 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
