With most early civilizations being attributed to the former countries it comprises of, the nation is culturally diverse; but its people tend to lean to its more Austronesian heritage due to the historical vanguard the South has provided, and, according to many anthropologists, Socialism's natural sociocentric tendencies. Consequently, these people are given drastic attention financially despite the government's strict social policies, and the Federation remains to be a leading power in terms of the world's average Human Development Index (HDI). Despite this indication, many of the conservative laws that govern the nation's people continue to restrict certain personal freedoms, such as prohibitions on Free Travel and Free Marriage.
Pan-Asia is, not only a political superpower, but an economic superpower as well, holding a significant 42%~ of the world's wealth. This wealth is distributed equally, with a heavily progressive and graduated income tax. Private industry is illegal under the Socialist regime, with state-owned businesses tightly regulated, maintained, and democratically managed by the government.
Nuclear Fallout and residue from the Third Pacific War is its biggest economic lashback, with the Agrarian industry in decline since the late 20th Century. Pockets of radiation continue to plague desolate areas deemed unsuitable for living by local authorities. Environmental policies, although largely paid attention to, remain scarce to resolve exponentially long-term difficulties such as nation-wide pollution and harmful gas emission. Nevertheless, Asia's Tourism industry fails to decline- known for the nation's rich history, diverse climates, strict egalitarianism, and futuristic cities; all of which contrast with the lush countrysides that grow in harmony with Metropolitan areas.
The current constitution of the Pan-Asiatic States officially defines the nation as a "Democratic State-Socialist Federal Republic", and it governs the nation in a proportional and representative manner in which majority rule is considered supreme authority.
The citizens of the Pan-Asiatic States are subject to four levels of ascending governance: District, Prefecture, State, and Federal. Being a State-Socialist nation, it also has a uniquely delineated hierarchy of workers' economic democracy, in which labor-participants collectively govern their workplaces and organizations.
The supreme executive body of the Pan-Asiatic States is the Administration, a triumvirate of the people's government composed of the Secretary-General, the acting Head of State, in charge of coordinating with the Executive Council (EC) in ensuring the implementation of both foreign and national agenda; the Supreme Commissary, the acting Head of Government in charge of ministerial supervisory and appointment; and the State Soviet, the acting head of the Congress of Soviets (CoS) in charge of maintaining order in the legislature.
The Federation itself is comprised of 9 Soviet States, which, in all but (Federal) law, military, and taxation; are recognized by the constitution as independent republics. Proportional elections for executive and representative positions are held with no electoral colleges, caucuses, or party-lists. The people themselves directly send the elective delegates as public functionaries. However, the size of both State-level and Federal-level legislatures is static and proportion-based, meaning that no new seats can be created despite the expanding population.
The State-Presidents, 9 elected representatives of each State, tasked with ensuring the implementation of both the law and the national agenda in their home states, compose the Executive Council. Led by the de jure Chairman of the Asian Communist Party, the Secretary-General (who only acts as a moderator during deliberations and holds no vote himself), the Executive Council decides immeadiate matters of both national and international basis, such as:
In the "Council Socialism" of the Pan-Asiatic States, voters are first organized in sector-based units, called the Basic Economic Assembly, for example, the workers of a company or factory, or the soldiers of a barracks. The councils are elected on several levels: primarily divided into the Residential and Business level, where delegates are sent from their local councils to form plenary assemblies. The delegates of the Economic Assemblies, in turn, can delegate members to the next administrative level. An Economic Assembly is led by an Elected Economic Manager (EEM), who manages a singular workplace. An economic organization (such as a state-company) is led by an Elected Economic Director (EED) (comparable to an elected Chief Executive Officer or CEO), who is elected by the collective vote of all Elected Economic Managers of all that organization's workplaces via the Popular Economic Assembly, and thus, in effect, all the Economic Assemblies of that economic organization. The EEDs report to the quotas and leadership mandated by the appropriate Ministry of their particular industry.
The EEDs also coordinate as "little Ministers" of the State Development and Plannning Commission (SDPC), through the State Development Directorate (SDD), the government department responsible for filing recommendation reports on how best to solve the economic issues of the Pan-Asiatic States. Members of the Directorate often associate with same-sector or same-district organizations, splintering into various factions when a need arises to advise certain executive or legislative personnel.
This "Economic Democracy" often referred to by ideologues of the Asian Communist Party is the key defining Socialist feature of the Pan-Asiatic States in contrast to Capitalist states insofar as workers are represented, and are thus able to have a say in where their labor is allocated to.
The elective levels are tied to administrative levels, and the electoral processes thus take place from the bottom upwards. The immediate geopolitical executive governing citizens is the District, which is governed by the District Captain of an elected District Council. Traditionally, several districts make a city (though in rural areas there may only be one district in a city), governed by a Mayor. Prefectures, which are region-based political entities composed of several districts and cities, are led by the Prefectural Captain or Prefect of an elected Prefectural Council. Despite this, especially in centrally-urbanized communities like Beijing, Neo-Tokyo, and Neo-Manila, some Prefectures are home to one district only and multiple Prefectures can belong to the same city.
The origin of the usage of the term "Captain" in referring to local executives is derived from the military history of the Pan-Asiatic States, where captured towns were commanded via military junta and were usually headed by Captains of battalions.
The system of delegation continues to the Congress of Soviets (CoS) at a legislative level. The president of the legislature is referred to as the State Soviet, and must have previous experience as a Soviet in the national legislature, but may be voted from outside that position, and by the general public. The Pan-Asiatic States houses no Senate, so proposals may be passed by any of the Federal Soviets or even by the State Soviet. The Congress of Soviets is also tasked with coordinating and appropriating the Federal funds of the administration, based on the advised fiscal policy of the State Development and Planning Commission.
Legislation implemented on a Federal level (in-effect in all 9 States) is referred to as a Federal Act and must be ratified by a session of the entirety of the Congress of Soviets; however, each State must maintain a local 501-man District Assembly, which passes State Ordinances. Each State's District Assembly is derived from the elected District Soviet (or District Congressperson) of each District. Each Prefecture equates to a single seat in the Federal Congress, as represented by the Federal Soviet (or Federal Congressperson).
There are 9, and as follows are the Tagalog District Assembly (TDA), Melanesian District Assembly (MDA), Nusantaran District Assembly (NDA), Siamese District Assembly (SDA), Burmese District Assembly (BDA), Indochinese District Assembly (IDA), Chinese District Assembly (CDA), Korean District Assembly (KDA), and Japanese District Assembly (JDA). State Ordinances primarily handle the intrinsic resolution of issues within each State without the approval of the Federal Congress. By definition, the District Assemblies no real bounds in legal alteration; so long as State Ordinances do not overrule national agenda passed by the Congress of Soviets. However, the Congress of Soviets may veto resolutions by a District Assembly through a counter-referendum.
There have been some moves toward political liberalization, in that open contested elections are now held at the village and town levels (compared to the Post-War era of the Pan-Asiatic States). However, the Party retains effective control over government appointments: in the absence of meaningful opposition, the Asian Communist Party wins by default most of the time. Political concerns in Asia include the growing gap between rich and poor caused by surplus accumulation by State-Companies, general directive of the Party to maintain and consolidate authority over each State without infringing upon each's autonomy too far, and government corruption. Nonetheless, the level of public support for the government and its management of the nation is high, with 80–95% of Asian citizens expressing satisfaction with the central government, according to a 2011 survey.
This Orientalist form of governance is colloquially referred to by its citizens as the New Democracy or the People's Democracy. Such an imperative mandate is in contrast to a free mandate, in which the elected delegates are only responsible to their conscience. Delegates may accordingly be dismissed from their post at any time or be voted out. For this reason, the States are recognized as one of the world's first successful Ochlocratic governments.
The Ministry of Finance (MOF), through the approval and emendation of the Congress of Soviets, releases the nation's annual budget every July, after the administration's State Of the Nation Address (SONA). The following year's budget is prepared from July to December through Bottom-Up Budgeting (BUB)-- which allows administrative localities to vote on each individual agency's budget allotment per district, then per State; followed through by a strict preliminary audit. All documents pertaining to the national budget are required by law (General Appropriations Act, GAA) to be released online; with physical copies of edits mailed to each City Hall. The ammendation must also be promulgated by the Pan-Asiatic Federal News Agency and Official State-Media (PAFNA-OSM). A drafted budget for the following year is promulgated through the aforementioned manner sometime during December, colloquially referred to as the GAA Early-Release. The National Budget is then gone through and approved by the National Audit Office (NAO), tasked with correcting errors, inconsistencies, and attempts at corruption.

Pre-Pacific Wars Japanese Pan-Asianism was, at its core, the idea that Asia should unite against European imperialism.
Before and during the Second and Third Pacific Wars, this was a major element in Japanese propaganda to justify Japanese external invasions. The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere was an example of this propaganda. The concept of a unified East Asia took form based on an Imperial Japanese Army concept that originated with General Hachirō Arita, an army ideologist who served as Minister for Foreign Affairs from 1936 to 1940. The Japanese Army said the new Japanese empire was an Asian equivalent of the Monroe Doctrine, especially with the Roosevelt Corollary. The regions of Asia, it was argued, were as essential to Japan as Latin America was to the United States.
Japanese Asianism developed as an ideal during the latter part of the 20th Century, intertwining among debates on solidarity with Asian nations who were under pressure of the West and on aggressive expansion to the Asian continent. The former debates originated from a post-colonial ideal of liberalism, or democratic centrism.
However, also from the Japanese point of view, one common principal reason stood behind both forming the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere and initiating war with the Allies: Chinese markets. Japan wanted their "paramount relations" in regard to Chinese markets acknowledged by the U.S. government. The U.S., recognizing the abundance of potential wealth in these markets, refused to let the Japanese have an advantage in selling to China. In an attempt to give Japan a formal advantage over the Chinese markets, the Japanese Imperial regime first invaded China and later launched the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.
The initial ideologues were Tokichi Tarui (1850–1922) who argued for equal Japan-Korea unionization for cooperative defence against the Western powers, and Kentaro Oi (1843–1922) who attempted domestic constitutional government in Japan and reforms of Korea. Pan-Asian thought in Japan began to develop in the late 19th century and was spurred on particularly following the defeat of Russia in the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905). This created interest from Bengali poets Rabindranath Tagore and Sri Aurobindo; as well as aspiring Chinese politician Sun Yat-sen.
The growing official interest in a broader Asian concern was shown in the establishment of facilities for Indian Studies. In 1899, Tokyo Imperial University set up a chair in Sanskrit and Kawi, with a further chair in comparative religion being set up in 1903. In this environment, a number of Indian students came to Japan in the early twentieth century, founding the Oriental Youngmen's Association in 1900. Their anti-British political activity caused consternation to the Indian Government, following a report in the London Spectator.
However, Japanese society had been strongly inclined to ultranationalism from the Freedom and People's Rights Movement. The latter debates on aggressive expansionism to Asia became clearly apparent. Their representatives were the Black Ocean Society and the Black Dragon Society. The Black Dragon Society (1933) argued for Japanese imperialism and expansionism, and they led to a debate on securing the Asian continent under Japanese control. Exceptionally, Ryōhei Uchida (1874–1937), who was a member of the Black Dragon Society, was a Japan-Korea unionist and activist of Philippines and Chinese revolutions.
Tōten Miyazaki (1870–1922) consistently supported a Chinese revolution of Sun Yat-sen with spiritual sacrifice and sympathy under imperial Japan. Okakura Kakuzō (1862–1913) criticized European imperialism as a destroyer of human beauty, and argued for romantic solidarity with diverse "Asia as one" against European civilization.
In a Chinese perspective, Japanese Asianism was interpreted as a rationalized ideology for Japanese military aggression and political absorption (cf. Twenty-One Demands). In 1917, Li Dazhao (1889–1927) argued for liberation of Asian nations and equal greater Asian union. In 1924, Sun Yat-sen (1866–1925) stated that the West was hegemonic and the East was Confucian, and he argued for full independence by resisting colonialism with "Greater Asianism" which unified Asian nations.
Political leaders from Sun Yat-sen in the 1910s and 20s to Mahathir Mohamad in the 1990s argue that the political models and ideologies of Europe lack values and concepts found in Asian societies and philosophies. European values such as individual rights and freedoms would not be suited for Asian societies in this extreme formulation of Pan-Asianism.
"Asia is one. The Himalayas divide, only to accentuate, two mighty civilisations, the Chinese with its communism of Confucius, and the Indian with its individualism of the Vedas. But not even the snowy barriers can interrupt for one moment that broad expanse of love for the Ultimate and Universal, which is the common thought-inheritance of every Asiatic race, enabling them to produce all the great religions of the world, and distinguishing them from those maritime peoples of the Mediterranean and the Baltic, who love to dwell on the Particular, and to search out the means, not the end, of life."
The radiation produced by the Third Pacific War left most parts of Central Asia inhospitable. Most of the Nuclear Fallout has been cleared, as environmental cleanup projects have been consistently active throughout the States since 1991. Most agricultural centers near the Siberian border have been rendered environmentally unstable, whilst persistent nuclear fallout in the Japanese region mixes with the already harsh side-effects of pollution within the city centres. As recent government policies deviate further and further away from Environmentalism, natural disasters exponentially increase in its quantity and scale of destruction.
A survey carried out in 2010 by The Bureau of Information identified 5 states that are extremely vulnerable to climate change. Each state's vulnerability was calculated using 42 socio, economic and environmental indicators, which identified the likely climate change impacts during the next 30 years. The Asian states of Indochina, Siam, and Melanesia were among the 3 states facing extreme risk from climate change. Some shifts are already occurring. For example, in tropical parts of Siam with a semi-arid climate, the temperature increased by 0.4 °C between 1901 and 2003. A 2013 study by the Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (CRISAT) aimed to find science-based, pro-poor approaches and techniques that would enable Asia's agricultural systems to cope with climate change, while benefitting poor and vulnerable farmers. The study's recommendations ranged from improving the use of climate information in local planning and strengthening weather-based agro-advisory services, to stimulating diversification of rural household incomes and providing incentives to farmers to adopt natural resource conservation measures to enhance forest cover, replenish groundwater and use renewable energy.
Chinese is the most widely-spoken language. Approximately 65.22% of the population speaks Chinese as their primary language, with another 20.88% primarily speaking English. 15% of the population primarily speaks in their indigenous languages. Standard English is taught for two years in schools throughout the Federation, primarily in Elementary, with further specializations, such as English Literature or English Writing, available as electives in higher education. However, the government actively encourages the population's preference of indigenous language over English or Chinese, and regional schools often provide mandatory courses on the language of that particular social group.
98.39% of the population are literate in at least two languages, and 23.45% of the overall population identifies with a particular dialect or sociolect.

Emancipation Theology, an organization of personality cults, informal worship, and regional practices throughout the States; popularized by Kim Il-Sung during the late stages of the Revolution, is also very popular among the Far Eastern regions of the States. It postulates that "man is the master of his destiny", that the Pan-Asian masses are to act as the "masters of the revolution and construction" and that by becoming self-reliant and strong a nation can achieve true socialism.
93.21% of those retaining Chinese descent, are of the Han variant. Among some southern Han Chinese varieties, however, such as Cantonese, Hakka, and Minnan, a different term exists – Tang Chinese (Chinese: 唐人; pinyin: Táng Rén, literally "the people of Tang"), derived from the later Tang dynasty, regarded as another zenith of Pan-Asian civilization. These racial denominations too, exist under the rough 7%~.
Many have often interpreted the Pan-Asiatic economy to be one in between State-Capitalism and Socialism; insofar as the Federation still commands a capitalist economy in relation to its economic agenda pertaining outside the Republics it composes. This essentially means that while capitalist competition has been abolished within the Pan-Asiatic States itself, the Federation authorizes select industrial organizations, through the State Development and Planning Commission (in cooperation with the Trade and Industry Commission as well as the Pan-Asiatic Economic Zone Authority) which are mandated to import and export their monopolies over the nation's goods in exchange for capital, which is later converted to workers' capital in the form of labor vouchers. This duality of operation also allows for multinational companies to operate within the Pan-Asiatic States through economic zones regulated and maintained by the government.
However, the Pan-Asiatic States mostly operate a state-socialist form of economic democracy; operating through the use of labor vouchers instead of wage-accumulated capital. Unlike money, vouchers cannot circulate and are not transferable between people. They are also not exchangeable for any means of production, hence they are not transmutable into capital. Once a purchase is made, the labor vouchers are either destroyed or must be re-earned through labor. With such a system in place, monetary theft in the Pan-Asiatic States is essentially impossible.
Such a system is a replacement for traditional money while retaining a system of remuneration for work done. It is also a way of ensuring that there is no way to make money out of money as in a capitalist market economy. Additionally, the only kind of market that could exist in an economy operating through the use of labor vouchers would be an artificial market for mostly non-productive goods and services.
The Pan-Asiatic Economy is also self-sufficient because the adapted form of decentralized planning allows for a spontaneously self-regulating system of stock control (relying solely on calculation in kind) to come about and that in turn decisively overcomes the objections raised by the economic calculation argument that any large scale economy must necessarily resort to a system of market prices. Essentially, the workers are in control of the means of production, democratically.
The government can harness land, labor and capital to serve the economic objectives of the state. This means that necessities such as housing, healthcare, and in times of local economic crisis, food, are guaranteed by the Pan-Asiatic States government through its respective agencies, mobilizing its resources through accumulated state-capital. Consumer demand can be restrained in favor of greater capital investment for economic development in a desired pattern.
In international comparisons, state-socialist nations like the Pan-Asiatic States compare favorably with capitalist nations in health indicators such as infant mortality and life expectancy. The state can begin building a heavy industry at once in an underdeveloped economy without waiting years for capital to accumulate through the expansion of light industry and without reliance on external financing. This kind of major economic reforms to transition the Pan-Asiatic States into this command-type economy began in the 90s, when the Pan-Asiatic government forced the share of gross national income dedicated to private consumption from eighty percent to fifty percent. As a result, the Pan-Asiatic States experienced massive growth in heavy industry, with a concurrent massive contraction of its agricultural sector, in both relative and absolute terms; effects which still influence the status quo.
The Pan-Asiatic States' relatively small consumer sector accounted for just under 60% of the country's GDP in 1990 while the industrial and agricultural sectors contributed 22% and 20% respectively in 1995. Agriculture was the predominant occupation in the Pan-Asiatic States before the massive industrialization efforts after the Third Pacific War. The service sector is of low importance in the Pan-Asiatic States, with the majority of the labor force employed in the industrial sector. Major industrial products include petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace, telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing, lumber, mining, and defense industry.
The nation is almost completely barren of private transportation, thanks to recent legislation calling for the ban of cars, motorcycles, and more; to make way for faster and safer government public transportation initiatives.
State-owned railways, which make up 68% of the sprawling Federation's dominant transportation, are run independently by local city administrations, and collectively by regional administrations. The national executive authority which regulates fiscal distribution of heavy government subsidization is the Land Transportation Office (LTO), which are in turn voted for in magnitude by a Congressional decision.
Exclusion from the 'Ban on Automobiles' is also managed by the LTO. This exclusion mostly provides a jumping-point for emergency vehicles and Gendarmerie units, but also other forms of public transportation such as Buses and Jeepneys, to utilize national highways and state-commissioned roads.
The State Development and Planning Commission has outlined the path for "complete nuclearization and development of unconventional power sources", sustainable by the year 2050. The Commission, conducting itself through a massive survey in 2015, postulated that 79% of the nation's infrastructure already runs on nuclear energy. The 79% can further be taxonomized into a classification of 36% Sakuradite-fueled energy- a renewable source of energy adapted from the research of renowned Soviet scientist Albert Einstein in his creation of the Sakuradite Bomb.
It had been long theorized that this massive potential for nuclear fission could be reintegrated as a cleaner source of energy insofar as that it left behind much more trace pockets of permanent radiation.
However, this development is also, in part, thanks to foreign initiatives to repair and revitalize post-war affected areas, which were propelled further above world standards by rigorous economic regulation of past administrations.
Asia Telecom and Asia Unicom, the world's two largest broadband providers, accounted for 20% of global broadband subscribers. Asia Telecom alone serves more than 50 million broadband subscribers, while Asia Unicom serves more than 40 million. Several Chinese telecommunications companies, most notably Huawei and ZTE, have been accused of spying for the Ministry of State and Public Security. These claims remain refuted by the government, although many outspoken indigenous political commentators consider it to be an open secret.
Asia is developing its own satellite navigation system, dubbed The Diwata Program, which began offering commercial navigation services across Asia in 2012, and is planned to offer global coverage by 2020.
Thanks to advances in Scientific Research by the biomedical community of the Pan-Asiatic States, as well as the overabundant dilemma of widespread overpopulation, "Igarashi Laboratories" are leading socio-political efforts to reform the descending heritage of Asia through forced Eugenicism. The aim is to leverage Eugenics to rid the population of hereditary diseases, artificially raise physical attributes and intelligence of average newborns, and procure egalitarian members of society who possess the exact same attributes as their neighbours do.
The Igarashi System, or The Red Strings of Science (RSS) is a collective group of policies aimed at systematic copulation of the most genetically compatible citizens in order to directly control population growth in correlation to the National Welfare budget, abolish marital divide, whilst excluding the undesirable races and those with hereditary disabilities. The people's government has also recently implemented drastic bureaucratic changes which involve the systematic production of newborn through Bokanovsky Laboratories. This, in theory, would help regulate population control and genetic incapabilities previously non-manipulable by Science.
The System, on a more socio-cultural aspect, also abolishes the institution of traditional marriage, as mentioned above- in place of a more Authoritarian system of state-compulsory, arranged marriage. The Statistical Unions have replaced and outlawed Free Marriage- which is seen as a Capitalistic endeavour under the States' Neo-Maoist regime.
Citizens take tedious, bureaucratic tests throughout their academic career to determine the most viable partner for their well-being; theoretically, to create responsible families which would be most likely to raise patriotic and refined members of society. When a citizen turns 14, an Assigned Wife or Assigned Husband is set for them by the Bureau of Population Control (BPC). Their interactions will be heavily monitored, and then members of the BPC release lists of those who have passed the examinations- couples which will be allowed to receive Parental Licenses.
The "Srivijayan Asians" which the States have been attempting to create, resemble Filipino-Malaysian characteristics. The aim is to create a light-brown "Kayumanggi" populace; as a tribute to the nation's Austronesian ancestry. The entire system seeks to abolish individualism in all its forms to enhance and secure Communism in the Pan-Asiatic States.
