Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Astalekon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Adrian Hawke with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.17 billion Astalekonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkwall. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The strong Astalekonian economy, worth 771 trillion Eraks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,434 Eraks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aging citizens are celebrating the end of the 'Early Bird War', Adrian Hawke's mistress is the belle at many state balls, Astalekonians have been enjoying a recent boost in civil rights as the government continues to clamp down on emigration, and animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astalekon's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Adrianism.

Astalekon is ranked 7,947th in the world and 376th in Lazarus for Best Weather, with 189 Meters Of Sunlight.
