The Empire of Asian Union is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kami-sama with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.945 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Almagemachina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asian Union's national animal is the Dango, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Secular Humanism, and its currency is the Rupee.

Asian Union is ranked 1,704th in Lazarus and 52,828th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 71 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
