Asoc lon

Population1.799 billion


The Republic of Asoc lon is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.799 billion Asoc lonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asoc lonian economy, worth 225 trillion pirams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 125,116 pirams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asoc lon's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asoc lon is ranked 7,006th in the world and 366th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,713.51 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
