The Empire of Ashist is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Aaron with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.005 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashist economy, worth 417 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 139,040 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. 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 7,701st in the world and 400th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 220 Meters Of Sunlight.
