Holy Anri Nation

The Theocracy of Holy Anri Nation is a fledgling, orderly nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million Holy Anri Nationians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as “my little playthings.”

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Holy Anri Nationian economy, worth 22.0 billion Anris 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 4,405 Anris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Anri Nation’s national animal is the Anri, which frolics freely in the nation’s many lush forests.

    1. You mean nightmare like, if you end up there for any period of time you may not be able to leave, because you won’t have the money to leave.


    1. Black tree spewing miasma around them.
      When you eat their fruits, you are forced to relieve your most fearful moments and to end all your sentences with “Evil God”.
      Also, they tend to attack you if you try to cut them down.

    1. I would have guessed Father Knows Best State myself, but Psychotic Dictatorship works.

      I meant the Pope was psychotic, Anri-sama, not you! Please put the tantou down…


  1. “College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and elections have been outlawed.”

    Poor little playthings… x)

  2. >Harry Potter best selling book.

    ‘. ‘ Wat.

    I’d think it’s Otoburi (Black Scripture doesn’t count since it’s ‘free’ afterall)


        1. Oh, by the way, I object to the use of “imploded” to describe the Holy Anri Nation’s economy. That is a misunderstanding of the economy.

          The economy there isn’t imploded, she hardly uses any spells. The proper description should be a “collapsed” economy. i.e collapsed adventurer, collapsed hero, collapsed priest etc.

          On the other hand, the potential outlook is good as the future predictions are for a “blooming” miasma economy.

      1. Unfortunately Nationstates always gets it wrong. They described my utopian free paradise as an “anarchy” ruled by “biker gangs.”

  3. Eeeh..
    So basically it’s a communist country, a theocracy, a meritocracy, an absolute monarchy, and a military nation all at the same time?
    Did I get it right?
    And why Basket Weaving?
    They can manufacture automotive but not basket?
    But that income tax though..
    Seriously? 75%?!


    1. Traditional basket-weaving is a Holy Anri Nation tradition. It’s important so I said it two times.

      Also treasure chest-making, but those are too holy to export. Only the treasures are allowed to be taken. The chests stay.


  4. Just when she thought she was getting used to her life in the new world, Evil Goddess Anri was summoned into the Nationstates world. “What a pain… Alright, I’ll make a paradise in this world.” Before long, the weapons (and baskets) produced by her Divine Enchantment were in heavy demand from neighboring countries. Furthermore, although she had only introduced it to have conveniently delivered food, the nation’s many pizza delivery companies got a lot of business from surrounding nations.

    To protect her peace and quiet ^H^H^H^H^H^H the peace of the country from all these aggressive entrepeneurs, Goddess Anri had no choice but to institute a punitive income tax. “That should show them… jannakite! I mean, it’s for the sake of the country,” the Goddess said, instituting progressive education and welfare programs as an afterthought ^H^H^H^H^H all according to plan.


  5. Secularists have been urging the government to impose an income tax on religious organizations in Pevert Ossan for some time now, and the issue has finally made its way to the upper levels of the government.

    The Honorable Natalia Bronte, Minister of Minding Other People’s Business, has an idea: “This religion thing is such a great racket, why don’t we make it a government monopoly? We’ll ban all religions except the Church of Pevert Ossan, and make attendance and donations compulsory. I’ll start writing the Holy Scriptures right away!”

    loled soo hard for that… maybe anri can help
