The Kingdom of Ashckar is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 418 million Ashckarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashckar City. The average income tax rate is 46.3%.
The powerhouse Ashckarian economy, worth 34.9 trillion Ashckronas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 83,559 Ashckronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, private law firms are unheard of, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ashckar's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
