The First Republic of Anskerdank is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Nicole Seibert with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, devout population of 2.648 billion Anskerdankis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United Cities of Mogrov and South Berlin. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anskerdanki economy, worth 384 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,020 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anskerdank's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Anskerdank is ranked 5,935th in the world and 85th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 106.44 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
