The Grand Duchy of Afriesinele is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The order of the weasel with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 952 million Afriesineleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Wesalburg. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Afriesinelean economy, worth 37.7 trillion DŁks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,601 DŁks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, St Wesalburg's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afriesinele's national animal is the Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Afriesinele is ranked 29,575th in the world and 443rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.73 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
