OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an even hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.346 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

All recreational drugs are legal, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Branston Pickle battlesuits, and the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS. 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 109,300th in the world for Safest, scoring -126.799 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
