The Social Stratocracy of Ascoobis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grand Premier Andreo Acero with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.026 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 income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascoobian economy, worth a remarkable 3,892 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 242,879 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. 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 204,576th in the world and 67th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -31.79 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
