LeaderBob Ross


The Empire of Ahssn is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Bob Ross with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.229 billion Avrorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Avroraian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 232,091 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, Bob Ross's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ahssn's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Ahssn is ranked 1,886th in the world and 109th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 28.4 bananas ingested per day.
