The Kingdom of Ashines is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 654 million FairyFolks 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fairy's Landing. The average income tax rate is 10.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Ashinesian economy, worth 33.7 trillion silver coins a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,532 silver coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, catcalling has been replaced by slut-shaming, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. Crime is totally unknown. Ashines's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
