Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population4.588 billion


The Republic of Asyllum is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.588 billion Asyllumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Asyllumian economy, worth 531 trillion Loonies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,744 Loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often kick crocodiles for amusement, many working fathers have never seen their children, fat-shaming is now public policy, and tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asyllum's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Asyllum is ranked 115,794th in the world and 5,411th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,015.28 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
