The Holy Green Woods of Ashrah is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Maraja Alara with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.071 billion Ashrahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alabra. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashrahian economy, worth a remarkable 2,358 trillion Seys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 180,442 Seys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashrah's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashrah is ranked 205,217th in the world and 452nd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -45.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
