The Social Stratocracy of Ascoobis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Premier Andreo Acero with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.146 billion Ascoobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkmount. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascoobian economy, worth a remarkable 3,672 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 242,499 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascoobis's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ascoobis is ranked 5,153rd in the world and 5th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 29.3 Bank.
