OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.647 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 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Aston City, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. 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 76th in the world for Largest Populations, with 25,647 Capita (millions).
