The Republic of Asle Leopolka is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.308 billion Asle Leopolkans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ballast Point. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Asle Leopolkan economy, worth 201 trillion Hops a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 154,178 Hops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 524,466 per year while the poor average 33,409, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Asle Leopolkans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asle Leopolka's national animal is the Gargoyle, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Occultism.

Asle Leopolka is ranked 161,232nd in the world and 112th in Texas for Most Avoided, scoring 1.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
