The Social Stratocracy of Ascoobis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Premier Andreo Acero with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.41 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%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascoobian economy, worth a remarkable 3,990 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 243,204 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Ascoobis's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations, a rusted hulk in Darkmount harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in The Coalition of Democratic Nations, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. 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 133,564th in the world and 35th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Rudest Citizens, with 43.51 Insults Per Minute.
