Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grey Republic of Aspratia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Hundredth Monkey with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.46 billion Aspratians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quinto. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aspratian economy, worth 396 trillion Shells a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,563 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aspratia's national animal is the Philosophical Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aspratia is ranked 132,626th in the world and 4,201st in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
