The Frozen Haven of Asherjuko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Elaine Reynolds with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.724 billion Asherjukoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jellybean Plaza. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Asherjukoan economy, worth 147 trillion Jukocoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,467 Jukocoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, Elaine Reynolds has just been declared ruler of Asherjuko in an international press conference, the Asherjukoan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asherjuko's national animal is the Maine Coon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asherjuko is ranked 245,983rd in the world and 343rd in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -54.46 on the Hayek Index.
