The Federal Kingdom of Anskerdank is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by EM Majesty Friedrich I with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.743 billion Anskerdankis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United Cities of Mogrov and South Berlin. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anskerdanki economy, worth 388 trillion Sovereigns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,649 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anskerdank's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Anskerdank is ranked 221,164th in the world and 1,097th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.59 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
