The Union Socialist Repiblic of Asgarlassia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 967 million Asgarlassians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Nautina. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Asgarlassians economy, worth 35.4 trillion Asgarlassian Rubles 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, fairly diversified black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, 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 36,605 Asgarlassian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Asgarlassia's national animal is the Asgarlassian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Asgarlassia is ranked 95,463rd in the world and 3,459th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,847.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
