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 notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.773 billion Asherakss are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized 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 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asherakian economy, worth 436 trillion Aezures a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,553 Aezures, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, anti-government web sites are springing up, skateparks can be found in every city, and anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed. Crime is totally unknown. Asherak's national animal is the Winterwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asherak is ranked 5th in Winterfell and 5,787th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
