Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Astalekon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Adrian Hawke with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.934 billion Astalekonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 96.6%.

The strong Astalekonian economy, worth 572 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 96,511 Eraks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astalekon's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and motels cater primarily to adulterers. 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, and its national religion is Adrianism.

Astalekon is ranked 1st in Wistlor and 8,951st in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 11 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
