The Asgardian Emperor of Sacred Yggdrasil is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its burgeoning phoenix population. The compassionate population of 5.1 billion Sacred Yggdrasilians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Social Equality are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming industries.
Voting is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, meat-eating is frowned upon, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sacred Yggdrasil's national animal is the phoenix, and its currency is the asgardan.
Sacred Yggdrasil is ranked 38th in Asgard and 81,142nd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 41 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
