The Empire of Ahssn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bob Ross with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 2.712 billion Avrorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avroraian economy, worth 470 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,319 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ahssn's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Ahssn is ranked 52,069th in the world and 1,961st in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 69.61 Insults Per Minute.
