The Glorious Conquest of Western New Asolist is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Jason IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 898 million Asolatians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Almighty Palace of Jason. The average income tax rate is 10.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Asolatian economy, worth 136 trillion souls of the innocents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,524 souls of the innocents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western New Asolist's national animal is the corpse of the enemy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Western New Asolist is ranked 296,748th in the world and 6,557th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -32 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
