The Red Meritocracy of Asmovia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.054 billion Asmovians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Powellton. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Asmovian economy, worth 998 trillion Asmovians a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 58,521 Asmovians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Asmovian treacle machine, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asmovia's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Asmovia is ranked 219,851st in the world and 259th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
