The Imperial Republic of Ashoy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ahan Shetty with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.314 billion Ashoyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antropodolis. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ashoyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion Atins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 186,929 Atins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashoy's national animal is the Golden Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashoy is ranked 93,831st in the world and 3,412th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,183.13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
