The Ashenovian Battleship of APS-25 Skopje is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 3.608 billion Ashenovian sailors 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient APS-25 Skopjean economy, worth 145 trillion Ashenovian NTC Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 40,190 Ashenovian NTC Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. APS-25 Skopje's national animal is the Brown Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

APS-25 Skopje is ranked 92,654th in the world and 3rd in The Ashenovian Admiralty for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 60 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
