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 remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.266 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 96.3%.

The strong Astalekonian economy, worth 609 trillion Eraks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,200 Eraks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Astalekon is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 1st in Wistlor and 132,992nd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -32 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
