The Kaiserreich of Asendavia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hjalmar XVIII with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.378 billion Asendavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strömhärad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Asendavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,417 trillion Jade Nudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 263,563 Jade Nudoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 803,910 per year while the poor average 67,020, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, everybody's got wood thanks to Hjalmar XVIII, couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Asendavia's national animal is the Gyoruna, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ademarism.

Asendavia is ranked 26,835th in the world and 1,023rd in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
