The One Billion One Nation of ASEAN Maharlika is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Doge with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 1.535 billion Filipinos 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 Defense, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manila. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Filipino economy, worth 136 trillion Philippine Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,911 Philippine Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Filipinos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ASEAN Maharlika's national animal is the Philippine Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ASEAN Maharlika is ranked 98,342nd in the world and 170th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 985.08 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
