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 ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.91 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 19,192 trillion Branston Pickles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 641,689 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and skateparks can be found in every city. 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 11th in the world and 1st in Suffolk for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 71,944.91 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
