The Empire of Ahssn is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Bob Ross with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 884 million 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avroraian economy, worth 115 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,996 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and much of Ahssn's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ahssn's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ahssn is ranked 132,734th in the world and 4,438th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 297.47 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
