The Greater Philippine Bayan of Asigna is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Punong Terten and Heneral Eluide with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.595 billion Bayan Filipinos enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bayan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayan Filipino economy, worth a remarkable 2,659 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 309,378 Pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,288,221 per year while the poor average 48,570, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

The new Agila Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Bayan City's water use, jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Asigna's national animal is the Agila, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is One true Church of the Holy Truth.

Asigna is ranked 3,106th in the world and 1st in New Ausozera for Most Cultured, scoring 186 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
