The Federal Republic of Asdersland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mme President with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.169 billion Asderslanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marlon. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Asders economy, worth a remarkable 1,253 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,034 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, high school bands practice by moonlight, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asdersland's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Asdersland is ranked 22,741st in the world and 77th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Developed, scoring 82.05 on the Human Development Index.
