The People's Magocracy of Asardia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Annora Allegrodo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.394 billion Asardians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seran. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Asardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,271 trillion Talis Ingeniums 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,923 Talis Ingeniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, the government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asardia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lógia Tessáron.

Asardia is ranked 100,330th in the world and 389th in 10000 Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,651.61 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
