The Commonwealth of Askeland Republic is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 387 million Askeland Republicians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.
The sizeable but inefficient Askeland Republician economy, worth 12.7 trillion Kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,770 Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and Leader is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls. Crime is well under control. Askeland Republic's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
