The Empire of Astalekon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Adrian Hawke with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.475 billion Astalekonians 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkwall. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government snoops on private internet connections, the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Adrianism, and its currency is the Erak.

Astalekon is ranked 5th in Wistlor and 105,041st in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
