The Republic of Askadian is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 662 million Askadianians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The strong Askadianian economy, worth 27.1 trillion Askadian dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Gambling. Average income is 40,896 Askadian dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 263,579 per year while the poor average 2,563, a ratio of 102 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Askadian's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Askadian is ranked 178,882nd in the world and 101st in Middle Earth for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 bananas ingested per day.
