Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Kingdom of Aston is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great King Aston III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.546 billion Astonians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The tiny, corrupt 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 18,652 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 653,428 Branston Pickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 1st in Suffolk and 22nd in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 43 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
