Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.374 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 receive no funds. 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 17,555 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 641,330 Branston Pickles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,043,095 per year while the poor average 153,153, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Much of Aston's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the Great Aston Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. 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 6,974th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 240.1 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
