Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ashist is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Aaron with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.676 billion Ashists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashist economy, worth 373 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,662 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashist's national animal is the Black Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ashist is ranked 25,914th in the world and 648th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 458.6746022814 Days.
