The Holy State of American Antartica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Jean-Baptiste I with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.216 billion American Antarcticans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra Australis. The average income tax rate is 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient American Antarctican economy, worth a remarkable 1,605 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,481 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

King Jean-Baptiste I's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, research into 'designer babies' is banned, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, and sweet-toothed American Antarcticans have been left penniless by the VAT on candy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. American Antartica's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Catholicism.

American Antartica is ranked 2,685th in the world and 3rd in Right to Life for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 12,099.63 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
