The Commonwealth of Aspacst is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Government of the Colonies with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 813 million Aspacstians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benedick. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Aspacstian economy, worth 57.6 trillion British Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 70,858 British Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, Aspacstian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and the Federal Council of Aspacst has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aspacst's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aspacst is ranked 52,870th in the world and 4th in Nation of Balestria for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
