The Royal Technocracy of Ascoobis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Nathaniel Jimenez with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 12.955 billion Ascoobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascoobian economy, worth a remarkable 3,098 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 239,153 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ascoobis's radio stations, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. 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 655th in the world and 1st in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 16,918.03 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
