The Kingdom of Asparagusia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 390 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 34.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Asparagusian economy, worth 36.6 trillion Asparagusian Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,911 Asparagusian Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Asparagusians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity. 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.
