“Onward, to the Future”
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: The New Commonwealth Society
The United Principality of Ashebourton is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prince Espinosa with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.254 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Public Transport receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davenport. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Ashebourton's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, organ donation is compulsory, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashebourton's national animal is the Raven, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dominion Dollar.
