Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.838 billion Askadarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askalopolis. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Askadarian economy, worth 595 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 43,068 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Artists are pillars of society, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. 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 70,678th in the world and 2,492nd in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 301 billion Standard Monetary Units.
