|Leader||The Duke d' Bernhardi|
|Currency||Gold Aschenburg Crown|
The Imperial Free City of Aschenburg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Duke d' Bernhardi with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.285 billion Aschenburgarians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of le Palais-Royal. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Aschenburgian economy, worth a remarkable 4,070 trillion Gold Aschenburg Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 360,675 Gold Aschenburg Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,520,748 per year while the poor average 55,427, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.
Exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries, and citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Aschenburg's national animal is the Aschenburgarian Sailfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
