The Empire of Ansoku is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lotus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.644 billion Ansoks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenno City. The average income tax rate is 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ansokuan economy, worth 327 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 199,502 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Calling Lotus a tyrant is seen as the ultimate compliment, Lotus's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and Ansokuan husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ansoku's national animal is the Kavat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wizardology.

Ansoku is ranked 23,831st in the world and 33rd in Lands End for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 4,692.24 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
