The Most Nihilistic Republic of Ansuriel is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Doge with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.891 billion Ansurielians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ansul. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ansurielian economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 trillion Ducatoes 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 187,255 Ducatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ansuriel's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Death Cult.

Ansuriel is ranked 2,356th in the world and 3rd in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Healthiest Citizens, with 23.92 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
