Asante Nation

Vital Statistics[]

  • Languages—Twi-Fanti [3]


  • 2025—Asante Nation was the only West African nation with the domestic stability to respond and apply for recognition as a country to the United States Global Economics Task Force.

Asante Nation is one of the few places in Africa that doesn’t have shifting borders, due to its recognition by world governments through the United Nations. It is a hereditary monarchy, ruled by King Osei Agyemang. Laws in the Asante Nation are described as “draconian,” with even the most minor of crimes punished by beating, maiming, or death.


The Asante Nation encompasses the mouth of the Volta river, going west through Greater Accra.
