The Republic of Anserisa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Columbo Septimum with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.475 billion Anserisans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brantavilla. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anserisan economy, worth 286 trillion Aureusoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,845 Aureusoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded Anserisa to disarm, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anserisa's national animal is the Anserisan Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Apertiaism.

Anserisa is ranked 241,561st in the world and 7,841st in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
