The Union of Socialist States of East Antarctica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Carol Figueroa with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.393 billion East Antarcticans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient East Antarctican economy, worth a remarkable 3,357 trillion Antarctic rubles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 250,703 Antarctic rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Carol Figueroa is a silly poophead, truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, and visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist States of East Antarctica's national animal is the Weddell seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Socialist States of East Antarctica is ranked 3,369th in the world and 107th in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 68 valid endorsements.
