This is a list of fictional countries supposedly located somewhere in the continent of Asia.

Central Asia

  • Kuala Rokat: a far eastern country in the Mission: Impossible TV episode "The Seal". Described in the tape sequence at the start of the episode as "a small but strategic nation on the India-China border".[1]
  • People's Republic of Tazbekistan, The BBC2 comedy drama Ambassadors (TV series) starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb as the British ambassador, Keith Davis, and his Mission deputy, Neil Tilly.[2]
  • Takistan: a country in Central Asia, from the computer game ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead.[3]
  • Tazbekistan:[4] Central Asian republic, setting for the 2013 BBC TV comedy series Ambassadors.

East Asia

  • Tokpan: a fictional country in Raya100, ruled by a dictator Emperor Terasiku.
  • Greater Korean Republic: A fictional country in Homefront (video game) which initially started off as a unified Korean Republic under Kim Jong-un, who managed to reunify the Koreas peacefully. It was established in 2015, after conquering Japan, the Philippines, and all of Southeast Asia and Western America.
  • Hun Chiu: A parody of Korea in Designated Survivor, which is divided into the democratic West Hun Chiu, which is a US ally and led by President Han, and the totalitarian East Hun Chiu, which is led by the tyrannical Chairman Kim.

Southeast Asia

  • Sunda: in Eric Ambler's State of Siege[5], is similar to Indonesia but much smaller, confined to a single island. (In reality there is a Sunda Strait and many islands known collectively as the Sunda Islands, but no specific one island with the name.)
  • Udon Khai: a country featured in the 1995 Andrew Vachss Batman novel Batman: The Ultimate Evil. Bordering Thailand, Udon Khai is a haven for wealthy sex tourists looking for child prostitutes. The country serves as a stand-in for Thailand and as a critique of Thailand's child sex industry.[6]
  • Bultan: A country in Designated Survivor that has a very strict legal system and is led by a Prime Minister. Relations with the US are tense due to an American youth being sentenced a harsh punishment and the unexpected death of the Bultanese ambassador.
  • Sarkhan: A country analogous to Vietnam in the novel The Ugly American. It is the location of a war between the United States and Communist insurgents.
