The Kingdom of Asggardd is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 238 million Asggarddians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Asggarddian economy, worth 6.38 trillion Odins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,797 Odins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, skateparks can be found in every city, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asggardd's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asggardd is ranked 11,073rd in the world and 35th in The Union of Democratic States for Safest, scoring 118.81 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
