The Federal People's Republic of Asherahan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Havika Solai with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 10.534 billion Asherahanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarai. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Asherahanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,109 trillion Asherans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,227 Asherans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asherahan's national animal is the Krapal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asherahan is ranked 1,475th in the world and 38th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Governments, scoring 55.36 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
