Location: Equestria

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Federation of Ashthon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning lion population. The hard-working, democratic population of 17.94 billion Ashthonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ashthonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Ants a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 56,288 Ants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashthon's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ashthon is ranked 76,026th in the world and 30th in Equestria for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,083.92 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
