The Empire of Ashakad is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its pith helmet sales and public floggings. The compassionate population of 1.086 billion Ashakadans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.9%.

The Ashakadan economy, worth 50.4 trillion Kapsus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,396 Kapsus, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, army rations are served on silver platters, and many in Ashakad are born in the purple. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashakad's national animal is the Lion.

Ashakad is ranked 96,328th in the world and 11th in Near Terra for Most Armed, with 0.3 Weapons Per Person.
