The Municipalities of Antarctica

The Stalwart Federation of The Municipalities of Antarctica is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 626 million Antarcticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hii. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Antarctican economy, worth 71.4 trillion Municipal Antarctic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 114,127 Municipal Antarctic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Antarctican novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Antarctican Embarrassments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Municipalities of Antarctica's national animal is the Weddell Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Municipalities of Antarctica is ranked 86,976th in the world and 2,921st in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,126.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
