The Republic of Asantia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Adam Rila with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 15.088 billion Asantians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markador. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Asantian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Bits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,834 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Markador's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Markador, and it is said that an Asantian woman's work is never done. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asantia's national animal is the River Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Asantia is ranked 244,321st in the world and 8th in Conifer for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -49.24 on the Hayek Index.
