The Imperial Republic of Anses is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Vampereo with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The devout population of 5.66 billion Ansesians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vampereo City. The average income tax rate is 22.3%.

The large but inefficient Ansesian economy, worth 301 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,288 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The price of freedom is about half a million dollars, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Vampereo wears an armoured gauntlet, crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, and the government claims that Vampereo's political enemies literally take candy from babies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Anses's national animal is the kitten and its national religion is Vampereonism.

Anses is ranked 129,693rd in the world and 3rd in Voltarium for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 1,039.83 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
