The Socialist Federal Republic of Ashenov is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Biljana Sinđelić with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.509 billion Ashenovians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgrade. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashenovian economy, worth a remarkable 3,169 trillion Ashenovian Rubles 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 301,584 Ashenovian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, no one is worried about government policies any more, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and employers are keenest on employees who lack family values. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashenov's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ashenov is ranked 269th in the world and 1st in USSD for Largest Governments, scoring 82.09 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
