The Socially Advanced Nation of Ascara is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Regent Alexander with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.266 billion Ascarans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress One. The average income tax rate is 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.
Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascara's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Deonaturalism, and its currency is the Talon.
