The Republic of Anserisa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Columbo Septimum with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 790 million Anserisans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anserisan economy, worth 76.2 trillion Aureusoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 96,481 Aureusoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions. Crime 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.

Anserisa is ranked 71,956th in the world and 1,457th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 144.09079667072 Days.
