The Colony of The Antarctic Union is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by president Leopold Braam with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.603 billion Antarcticans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Public Transport, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Administration isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rensberg. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Antarctican economy, worth 209 trillion Antartican rand a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,442 Antartican rand, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, male tourists tend to be fearful of The Antarctic Union's deadly femme fatales, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Antarctic Union's national animal is the snow petrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Antarctic Union is ranked 60,259th in the world and 2nd in Order of the Southern North for Best Weather, with 111 Meters Of Sunlight.
