The People's Republic of Aressna is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Premier Sophia Dimitrova with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.49 billion Ressians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krakow. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ressian economy, worth 679 trillion Ressian Złoties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 151,280 Ressian Złoties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Intelligence services are renowned for their godless ways, all beauty contests have been banned, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aressna's national animal is the rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aressna is ranked 14,152nd in the world and 7th in United Forum of Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,830.17 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
