Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Royal Lands of Asherak is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aran Asher the Just with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.627 billion Asherakss 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wintermare. The average income tax rate is 15.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Asherakian economy, worth 616 trillion Aezures a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,006 Aezures, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and torture is illegal. Crime is relatively low. Asherak's national animal is the Winterwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asherak is ranked 169th in Winterfell and 107,756th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 5 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
