Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.053 billion Askadarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askalopolis. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Askadarian economy, worth 83.1 trillion Sols a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,367 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers compete for the highest commissions from fines, votes of no confidence regularly remove unwanted MPs, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and the Askadarian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. 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 547th in Lazarus and 10,852nd in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 181.996 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
