The Republic of Anserisa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Columbo Septimum with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.261 billion Anserisans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anserisan economy, worth 141 trillion Aureusoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,419 Aureusoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, Anserisan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the Anserisan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anserisa's national animal is the Anserisan Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Apertiaism.

Anserisa is ranked 181,965th in the world and 6,838th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.04 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
