Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.539 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 20,209 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 684,175 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and builders across Aston are blocked up with orders for new public loos. 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 49,125th in the world and 2nd in Suffolk for Nudest, with 168.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
