The Democratic Republic of North Asiania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its feral children, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 404 million Proletarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peking. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Asiania economy, worth 27.2 trillion credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 67,217 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, and there is a law against "filthy foreign food". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Asiania's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Asiania is ranked 217,733rd in the world and 499th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 3.09 Atheism Rate.
