The Commonwealth of Anisopterra is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Asa Libellen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.092 billion Anisopterrans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odonata DA. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Anisopterran economy, worth 970 trillion Flutters a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,879 Flutters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Anisopterra is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anisopterra's national animal is the Miniature Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anisopterra is ranked 77,024th in the world and 307th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 25.22 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
