Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 27.197 billion Astonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business 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 17,387 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 639,313 Branston Pickles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,096,572 per year while the poor average 146,310, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. 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 2nd in Suffolk and 127,974th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -338 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
