The Imperial State of Asgareth is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by General Edmund de'Lance with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.463 billion Asgarthians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Asgarthan economy, worth a remarkable 2,647 trillion Imperial Stars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 312,799 Imperial Stars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,109,166 per year while the poor average 63,631, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war. 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. Asgareth's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Paritianity.

Asgareth is ranked 54,957th in the world and 21st in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,697.55 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
