The Federation of Axstahl is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 182 million Axstahlians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Axstahlian economy, worth 13.6 trillion stahlmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,614 stahlmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Axstahl's national animal is the bulldog.

Axstahl is ranked 111,012th in the world and 5,835th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 138.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
