Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Principality of Ashebourton is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Espinosa with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 12.535 billion Ashebourtonians 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 is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charlottestown. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ashebourtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Dominion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,508 Dominion Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, the endangered saltwater humpback Raven is only seen in captivity programs, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashebourton's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ashebourton is ranked 6,746th in the world and 3rd in The New Commonwealth Society for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.58 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
