The Kingdom of Ashckar is a huge, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic population of 568 million Ashckarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large 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 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ashckarian economy, worth 48.0 trillion Ashckronas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,567 Ashckronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. 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.
