The Armed Republic of States of Asra is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Commandant and Premier with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.059 billion Asrans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleroma. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asran economy, worth 637 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 157,014 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, t-shirts displaying a photo of Commandant and Premier performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and robosexual marriages are increasingly common. Crime is totally unknown. States of Asra's national animal is the snow leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosis.

States of Asra is ranked 995th in the world and 363rd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 86,341 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
