The Ashenovian Battleship of APS-25 Skopje is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 3.412 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 137 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 51,163rd in the world and 803rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Inclusive, scoring 108.77 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
