The Commonwealth of Anisopterra is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Asa Libellen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.207 billion Anisopterrans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odonata DA. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Anisopterran economy, worth 372 trillion Flutters a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,243 Flutters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, Anisopterra's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anisopterra's national animal is the Miniature Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anisopterra is ranked 5,051st in the world and 76th in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 94.63 Effective Tax Rate.
