The Empire of Astalekon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Adrian Hawke with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.165 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 Law & Order and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkwall. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. 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 3rd in Wistlor and 76,108th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
