Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.175 billion Askadarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askalopolis. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Askadarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,014 trillion Sols a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,712 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBA Governor goes house hunting, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown. Askadar's national animal is the White Six-winged Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Askadar is ranked 119,023rd in the world and 3,907th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 43.41 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
