The Republic of Independent Antartica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The people with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.69 billion Independent Antarticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marie byrd land. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Independent Antartican economy, worth 198 trillion Artic Dollars 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified 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 an impressive 117,391 Artic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, sometimes a single pallbearer is all you need, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown. Independent Antartica's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Independent Antartica is ranked 127,379th in the world and 4,467th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 15.04 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
