The Endos Go Here of Asdersland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mme President with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.944 billion Asderslanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marlon. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Asders economy, worth 896 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,247 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, high school bands practice by moonlight, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asdersland's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Asdersland is ranked 19,558th in the world and 60th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Developed, scoring 83.33 on the Human Development Index.
