The Colonial Governor of Ashley Charles is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 13.557 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal government devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving industries.
Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, military funding has been stripped back, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ashley Charles's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the dollar.
