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 iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.522 billion Astonians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 17,729 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 644,201 Branston Pickles, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, billions of Branston Pickles are being blown on orbital weapons development, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. 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 3rd in Suffolk and 129,274th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -27 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
