The Great Empire of Asinland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Imperator Asinarath with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 21.18 billion Asinlandiar are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaosphere. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Asinlandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,235 trillion asis 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 199,960 asis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imperator Asinarath spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, interest in globalism never flags, people have become comfortably numb, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asinland's national animal is the knork, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chaos.

Asinland is ranked 8,005th in the world and 364th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,359.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
