The Holy Empire of Angersthal is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 442 million Angersthalians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Angersthalian economy, worth 12.4 trillion Angers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 28,070 Angers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Angersthal City, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, getting a blood transfusion from an Angersthalian entitles a foreigner to citizenship, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angersthal's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Angersthal is ranked 230,900th in the world and 299th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 46.1 on the Human Development Index.
