The Republic of Ashlak is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Amelia Valhoff with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.377 billion Ashlakians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashlakian economy, worth a remarkable 2,953 trillion laks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 192,043 laks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ashlak's radio stations, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashlak's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ashlak is ranked 388th in the world and 11th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 15,484.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
