The One true Bayan of Asigna is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by One True Pope President Erin Terten with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.705 billion Filipinos are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bayan city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Filipino economy, worth a remarkable 2,198 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 285,290 Pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,138,327 per year while the poor average 48,100, a ratio of 23.7 to 1.

Tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime is totally unknown. Asigna's national animal is the Philippine eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One true Catholic and Apostolic church.

Asigna is ranked 30,184th in the world and 9th in Nationalist Commonwealth of Free Regions for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,291.15 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
