The Ęsir Federation of United Asgardian States is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Thor Odinson of Asgard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.698 billion Asgardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Asgard. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asgardian economy, worth 815 trillion Asgardian Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,140 Asgardian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and nose plugs are the latest Asgardian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Asgardian States's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is OdinForce.

United Asgardian States is ranked 11,162nd in the world and 566th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 32.28 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
