The Queen's State of Ashley Charles is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 22.27 billion Ashley Charlesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ashley Charlesian economy, worth 958 trillion betales a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,050 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military funding has been stripped back, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and Ashley Charles has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is well under control. Ashley Charles's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ashley Charles is ranked 113,885th in the world and 1,042nd in Ancient Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring zero on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
