Antarctica is the southernmost land mass on Earth, covering the South Pole. Perpetually a region of cold temperatures and almost completely covered by snow and ice, it provides an ideal location for Adrian Veidt's retreat, Karnak.

A longstanding treaty among several nations of the world has kept Antarctica or regions of it from becoming the sole territory of one nation, preserving it almost strictly for scientific research.

During the Watchmen story, Rorschach and Nite Owl travel there in the latter's aircraft, Archie to confront Veidt.
