The United Island States of AHSCA is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Marcella Villa with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.542 billion AHSCAians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Environment, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Administration isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora Island. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The powerhouse AHSCAian economy, worth a remarkable 4,403 trillion island credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 149,047 island credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AHSCA's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Madokamism.

AHSCA is ranked 7,269th in the world and 17th in Greater Dienstad for Highest Poor Incomes, with 116,914.18 Standard Monetary Units.
