The Royal Empire of Asparo is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 777 million Asparoans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The strong Asparoan economy, worth 40.7 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 52,382 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime is relatively low. Asparo's national animal is the chipmunk, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Asparo is ranked 135,712th in the world and 18th in The Grand New Republic for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.76 Kickbacks Per Hour.
