The Kingdom of Ashckar is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 385 million Ashckarians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashckar City. The average income tax rate is 45.5%.
The powerhouse Ashckarian economy, worth 32.1 trillion Ashckronas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 83,402 Ashckronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
The government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, baiting is a national sport, and the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashckar's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
