The Empire of Ashist is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Aaron with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.19 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashist economy, worth 586 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 140,012 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. 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 3,720th in the world and 118th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,661.27 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
