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 renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.046 billion Astonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 19,061 trillion Branston Pickles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 656,251 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 192,000th in the world and 2nd in Suffolk for Best Weather, with -4240 Meters Of Sunlight.
