Dave,

I noticed in the phlethora of countries available for choosing your location of habitation, that Antarctica is not included.
Is this a conscious decision?

Nope, it's built into the system.

Perhaps the Snitz folks hate Antarcticans. I would guess the Arctic isn't listed either..?

antarctica is not an independent country but a free region under international protection.many countries have scientific stations but that's about it.so even if you live there your nationality remains another.

and good thing it is that it's international ground.more than one nation(us and russia mainly)wanted to start mineral researches for commercial purposes there but fortunately they abbandoned.i don't know if this is due to technical difficulties,political\diplomatical problems or ecoactivism (probably all this contributed) but i'm glad that the last free land on this planet remains uncontamined of human presence.
