The Kingdom of Ashckar is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 996 million Ashckarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashckar City. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ashckarian economy, worth 86.3 trillion Ashckronas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,602 Ashckronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, anti-government web sites are springing up, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. 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.

Ashckar is ranked 29,271st in the world and 370th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,611.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
