The Vizier of Asendavia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hjalmar XVIII with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.858 billion Asendavians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strömhärad. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Asendavian economy, worth a remarkable 2,786 trillion Jade Nudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 282,622 Jade Nudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asendavia's national animal is the Gyoruna, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ademarism.

Asendavia is ranked 239,022nd in the world and 8,503rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 8.48 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
