The Federal Kingdom of Anskerdank is a massive, genial nation, ruled by EM Majesty Friedrich I with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.775 billion Anskerdankis 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United Cities of Mogrov and South Berlin. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anskerdanki economy, worth 396 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,052 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anskerdank's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Anskerdank is ranked 180,353rd in the world and 824th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.9 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
