The Fifth Empire of Ashkera is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Oversight Councillor One with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 11.102 billion Ashkerans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galgatta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashkeran economy, worth a remarkable 3,391 trillion Silver Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 305,458 Silver Notes, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashkera's national animal is the Ashkeran Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Shadow Path.

Ashkera is ranked 6,208th in the world and 6th in Union of Free Nations for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 92.55 Effective Tax Rate.
