The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 10.014 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Sol.

Askadar is ranked 3,560th in Osiris and 121,667th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
