Community of Anthologica, top. Official name of Anthologica, a crowned republic populated by conlangers and conworlders in Syndyktea. It is sometimes referred to as the Queendom of Anthologica when one pretends to sound démodé in a positive way.

etymology: Unclear. Some scholars have suggested it comes from ant (eusocial insects of the family Formicidae) + hology "science of holes" + –ica "collection of things (related to the combining root)", so the name would mean "collective scientific study of ant holes". Others suggest that ant– is in fact a short version of anti– "against" used before vowel or h, thus meaning "collection of (people) against the scientific study of holes".
attestation: Community of Anthologica; Queendom of Anthologica.
