The Holy Green Woods of Ashrah is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maraja Alara with a fair hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.838 billion Ashrahians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alabra. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ashrahian economy, worth a remarkable 2,706 trillion Seys 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 182,380 Seys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, the steaks are too high for ambassadors to butcher foreign relationships, and parking's carefree without parking car fees. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashrah's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashrah is ranked 240,333rd in the world and 491st in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 4.98 Insults Per Minute.
