OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Republic of Ascelonia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by noone with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.38 billion Ascelonians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyrone. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling industries.

The government is giving peace a chance, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ascelonia's national animal is the Azkelonischen Seel÷we, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Ascelonian Credit.

Ascelonia is ranked 82nd in Laissez Faireholm and 110,655th in the world for Best Weather, with -730 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
