The Kingdom of Asparagusia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 366 million Asparagusians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankyra. The average income tax rate is 33.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Asparagusian economy, worth 34.1 trillion Asparagusian Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,206 Asparagusian Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.
The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asparagusia's national animal is the Weasel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
