The Kingdom of Aswick is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King William Stonebridge with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.633 billion Aswickans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aswickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,101 trillion Aswickan Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,294 Aswickan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, artists are pillars of society, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. 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 14,489th in the world and 10th in Astyria for Most Cultured, scoring 94 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
