The Republic of Anserisa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Columbo Septimum with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.897 billion Anserisans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anserisan economy, worth 576 trillion Aureusoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,667 Aureusoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anserisa's national animal is the Anserisan Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Apertiaism.

Anserisa is ranked 259,410th in the world and 12,173rd in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 0.72 flags saluted per person per day.
