The Greater Philippine Bayan of Asigna is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Punong Terten and Heneral Eluide with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.072 billion Bayan Filipinos are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized 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 73.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayan Filipino economy, worth a remarkable 2,629 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 325,770 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, Asigna Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime is totally unknown. Asigna's national animal is the Agila, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One true Church of the Holy Truth.

Asigna is ranked 8,207th in the world and 7th in Greater Dienstad for Highest Drug Use, scoring 111.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
