The Grand Republic of Ascelonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Donald J Trump with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.035 billion Ascelonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyrone. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Ascelonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,293 trillion Ascelonian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 273,670 Ascelonian Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.
Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Cyrone, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ascelonia's national animal is the Azkelonischen Seel÷we, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
