The Empire of Ashist is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Aaron with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.288 billion Ashists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
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 321 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 140,454 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, and businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up. 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.
