Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grey Republic of Aspratia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Hundredth Monkey with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.885 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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aspratian economy, worth 493 trillion Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,959 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in the Hundredth Monkey's bedroom, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. 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 8,188th in the world and 360th in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 62.47 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
