The Republic of Assamland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 432 million Assamlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The strong Assamlandian economy, worth 35.8 trillion Guldens a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,943 Guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Assamland's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Assamland is ranked 126,204th in the world and 57th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.11 on the Rand Index.
