The Great Empire of Asinland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Imperator Asinarath with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 17.078 billion Asinlandiar are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaosphere. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Asinlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,509 trillion asis 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 205,501 asis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asinlandian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, citizens frequently duel to decide who gets to go for jury duty, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, and the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asinland's national animal is the knork, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chaos.

Asinland is ranked 222,462nd in the world and 8,197th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -15.2 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
