The Holy Green Woods of Ashrah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maraja Alara with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.187 billion Ashrahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alabra. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashrahian economy, worth a remarkable 2,394 trillion Seys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 181,594 Seys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashrah's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashrah is ranked 63,411th in the world and 166th in Forest for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
