OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.578 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 new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and large areas of Askadar are not accessible by the public. 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 1,954th in Osiris and 74,013th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
