Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.785 billion Astonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 17,040 trillion Branston Pickles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 636,181 Branston Pickles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,377,821 per year while the poor average 63,301, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, billions of Branston Pickles are being blown on orbital weapons development, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime is totally unknown. Aston's national animal is the Suffolk Punch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aston is ranked 1st in Suffolk and 16,335th in the world for Safest, scoring 453.892 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
