The Republic of Anserisa is a huge, genial nation, notable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 574 million 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Anserisan economy, worth 47.2 trillion Aureusoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 82,307 Aureusoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, the military struggles with recruitment, fat-shaming is now public policy, and all beauty contests have been banned. 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.

Anserisa is ranked 144,544th in the world and 6,448th in the South Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 548.18 milliStalins.
