Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.381 billion Astonians 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aston City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Astonian economy, worth an astonishing 20,059 trillion Branston Pickles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 682,739 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and abortions are routinely performed in Aston's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Aston's national animal is the Suffolk Punch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aston is ranked 96th in the world and 1st in Suffolk for Smartest Citizens, with 305.77 Quips Per Hour.
