The Metropolitan Borough of Astholm is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.967 billion, 1.966 billion of whom are zombies, Astholmish English Canadians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, Astholm's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Astholm's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the pound.

Astholm is ranked 1st in Windemere and 16,319th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Astholm is currently considering its options.
