The Queer Commune of Aspistania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Emma Corvus with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.249 billion Aspistanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talisea. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Aspistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,413 trillion Asps 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,378 Asps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Aspistanians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aspistania's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aspistania is ranked 3,257th in the world and 53rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,641.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
