Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Republic of Askadar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Toril Maelstrom with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.625 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, socially-minded 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 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Askadarian economy, worth 784 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 50,209 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft. 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 177,608th in the world and 5,468th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -33.11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
