The Unified Electorates of Ainslie is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Andrew Kenzai with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.764 billion Ahnslens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnton. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ainsliean economy, worth 568 trillion Ahnsens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,572 Ahnsens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, government critics have noticed a lot of new neighbors with expensive surveillance equipment in their garages, Prime Minister Andrew Kenzai has just been declared ruler of Ainslie in an international press conference, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ainslie's national animal is the Mivai, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whindism.

Ainslie is ranked 126,485th in the world and 216th in The Western Isles for Most Extreme, scoring 11.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
