The Heavenliest Kitten Heavens of Asianite is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Maximilian Shoeshine with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.34 billion Asianiteans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lapton. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Asianitean economy, worth 268 trillion Poops 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,721 Poops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, third world countries are rich in "I Love Lapton" t-shirts, every week is blindness awareness week, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asianite's national animal is the Tabby Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asianite is ranked 237,287th in the world and 344th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.88 crimes per hour.
