The Free Land of Assoui is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Mighty Queen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.483 billion Assouians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astalo. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Assouian economy, worth 464 trillion Bacons 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,516 Bacons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Astalo Film Festival recently voted 'Assouian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids. Crime is totally unknown. Assoui's national animal is the Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Assoui is ranked 15,025th in the world and 64th in Gay for Most Developed, scoring 80.78 on the Human Development Index.
