Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Federal Republic of Anchovan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sauer Kraut with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.765 billion Fishermens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Sprats. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Anchovanian economy, worth 137 trillion Sardines a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,652 Sardines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, Brasilistan has been announced as the nation's newest colony, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Anchovan's national animal is the Anchovy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anchovan is ranked 38,094th in the world and 1,395th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,585.7 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
