The Kingdom of Aswick is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King William Stonebridge with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.131 billion Aswickans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aswickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Aswickan Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,507 Aswickan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aswick's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aswick is ranked 12,667th in the world and 7th in Astyria for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.88 Years.
