The Free Land of Assoui is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Mighty Queen with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.341 billion Assouians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, 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 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Assouian economy, worth 567 trillion Aarres 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 106,161 Aarres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, interest in globalism never flags, and stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff. Crime is totally unknown. Assoui's national animal is the Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Assoui is ranked 177,526th in the world and 6,096th in Balder for Fattest Citizens, with 7.56 Obesity Rate.
