OverviewFactbookDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Metropolitan Borough of Astholm is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.143 billion 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 4th in Windemere and 74,163rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -38 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
