The Sweet and Snarky Community of The Anti-Social Socialists is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.856 billion Anti-Social Socialists love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Randominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Anti-Social Socialistian economy, worth a remarkable 2,089 trillion Lyres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 192,444 Lyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Lyres of property damage, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, dining out often involves Lyrebirds on the plate no matter what you order, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Anti-Social Socialists's national animal is the Lyrebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sweet and Sour Secularism.

The Anti-Social Socialists is ranked 223,059th in the world and 5,210th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.27 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
