The United Empire of Asukana is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Arakan Haishima with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.776 billion Asukanan have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ryū. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Asukanan economy, worth 248 trillion Asukanan Kins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 139,694 Asukanan Kins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 430,011 per year while the poor average 35,058, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Tumbleweeds are seen blowing through the nation's airspace, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asukana's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ryujinlism.

Asukana is ranked 96,379th in the world and 891st in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,254.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
