OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 10.793 billion Askadarians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askalopolis. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Askadar's radio stations, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and it's always rabbit season. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Askadar's national animal is the White Six-winged Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Sol.

Askadar is ranked 121st in Osiris and 4,433rd in the world for Safest, scoring 553 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
