The Empire of Greater Antia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Zerkius with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 906 million Antians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antia City. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Antian economy, worth 83.7 trillion Zeskadans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,436 Zeskadans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, the endangered saltwater humpback Antian Snake is only seen in captivity programs, it is rumoured that Emperor Zerkius uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Antia's national animal is the Antian Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Antia is ranked 19,275th in the world and 569th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,201.39 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
