The United Republic of AngusEssa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gerolan II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.37 billion AngusEssans 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nottawasaga. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming AngusEssan economy, worth 866 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,503 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AngusEssa's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

AngusEssa is ranked 147,865th in the world and 5,766th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 29.22 on the Rand Index.
