Asoc lon

Population569 million


The Republic of Asoc lon is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 569 million Asoc lonians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Asoc lonian economy, worth 62.5 trillion pirams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,777 pirams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asoc lon's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asoc lon is ranked 25,973rd in the world and 822nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
