Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.16 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 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 20,090 trillion Branston Pickles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 688,974 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the government spends millions of Branston Pickles every year prosecuting spammers, and the nation leads Suffolk in per capita stalking. 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 182,635th in the world and 3rd in Suffolk for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2.29 Tourists Per Hour.
