The Grey Warden State of Hashishin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Old Man with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.591 billion Assassins are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alamut Castle. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Hashishinian economy, worth 253 trillion Daggers a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 70,604 Daggers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hashishinian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Hashishin's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of Assassins.

Hashishin is ranked 186,601st in the world and 8th in Confederation Of Great Nations for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.84 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
