The Holy Land of Ashant is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sigmund Alter Von Zummer with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.423 billion Ashantians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cracovia City. The average income tax rate is 39.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ashantian economy, worth 291 trillion Zummnickles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,312 Zummnickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many Ashantians are their brothers' keepers, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashant's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Scientology.

Ashant is ranked 191,976th in the world and 42nd in Union of Allied States for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 487.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
