The Republic of Anserisa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Columbo Septimum with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.199 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, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anserisan economy, worth 259 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 118,031 Aureusoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded Anserisa to disarm, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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 6,161st in the world and 195th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,346.79 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
