The Imperial Republic of Ashoy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ahan Shetty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.873 billion Ashoyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antropodolis. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ashoyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,567 trillion Atins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 199,157 Atins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Antropodolis, government officials across Ashoy are being "encouraged" to adopt Golden Griffins to set an example for the populace, and home renovation shows are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashoy's national animal is the Golden Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashoy is ranked 6,025th in the world and 286th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,742.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
