The Martial Republic of Ascoobis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Generalissimo Reyno Nicholas with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, humorless population of 22.961 billion Ascoobians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkmount. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascoobian economy, worth a remarkable 5,592 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 243,548 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascoobis's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ascoobis is ranked 20,213th in the world and 18th in The Free Nations Region for Most Income Equality, scoring 79.24 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
