The Unified Electorates of Ainslie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eleane Gifford with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.98 billion Ahnslens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnton. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ainsliean economy, worth 970 trillion Ahnsens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,222 Ahnsens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who leak pus from infected wounds are told to suck it up, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, and Ahnslens believe the only thing that will make you happy is being unhappy with who you are. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ainslie's national animal is the Wallaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whindism.

Ainslie is ranked 10,326th in the world and 24th in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 30.87 Bank.
