The Federal People's Republic of Asherahan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Havika Solai with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.387 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarai. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Asherahanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,624 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, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 193,724 Asherans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 15,908th in the world and 371st in The Communist Bloc for Most Income Equality, scoring 75.45 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
