The Divine Island Kingdom of Aschente is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Atticus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 8.343 billion Tech Mages 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stormblade City. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aschentean economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Rubies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,544 Rubies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, the might of the entire Aschentean Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aschente's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aschente is ranked 35,466th in the world and 345th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,076.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
