The People's Republic of Axstahl is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karlos Marko with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.084 billion Axstahlians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Axhalla. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Axstahlian economy, worth 110 trillion stahlmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,233 stahlmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, Karlos Marko panders to nontraditional families, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Axstahl is ranked 17,628th in the world and 985th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 77.09 Years.
