The People's Republic of Ayushvandra is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 68 million Ayushvandrans 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 medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ayushvandran economy, worth 2.01 trillion Vyats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Retail, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,503 Vyats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Ayushvandra City Times is sold out, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Ayushvandran weed picker are way up, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime is totally unknown. Ayushvandra's national animal is the Maleo Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ayushvandra is ranked 76,321st in the world and 3,534th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,063.77 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
