Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Back In Black of Eggy216 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Miguel Estévez Velázquez with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.671 billion Astleyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ainish City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The Astleyan economy, worth 860 trillion Civilies a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 99,243 Civilies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business subsidies are discontinued, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the undead roam the streets and countryside at night (Eggy216 has found 3 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eggy216's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eggism.

Eggy216 is ranked 26th in Social Liberal Union and 3,065th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 16 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
