The Empire of Ahssn is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bob Ross with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The devout population of 2.567 billion Avrorians 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 Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avroraian economy, worth 433 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,877 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and the comic book series 'Bob Ross and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ahssn's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Ahssn is ranked 7,321st in the world and 430th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 255 Meters Of Sunlight.
