The People's Republic of Aspyre is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 299 million Aspyreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Aspyrean economy, worth 9.81 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 32,800 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, and the Aspyrean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aspyre's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aspyre is ranked 169,717th in the world and 6,202nd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
