The Principality of Asatruvia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Hubert with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.502 billion Asatruvii 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Asatruvi economy, worth 661 trillion Gold Eagles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 146,964 Gold Eagles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 423,791 per year while the poor average 40,458, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Asatruvia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Forn Sidr.

Asatruvia is ranked 163,916th in the world and 12th in Nordisches Kaiserreich for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 4.94 Effective Tax Rate.
