Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.387 billion Askadarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askalopolis. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Askadarian economy, worth 701 trillion Sols a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,742 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. Crime is totally unknown. Askadar's national animal is the White Six-winged Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Askadar is ranked 178,649th in the world and 4,886th in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -36.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
