OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.329 billion Astonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aston City. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Aston's national animal is the Suffolk Punch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Branston Pickle.

Aston is ranked 1st in New Suffolk and 161st in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 21 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
