The Federation of Axstahl is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 144 million Axstahlians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 47.9%.
The very strong Axstahlian economy, worth 9.76 trillion stahlmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,778 stahlmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Conspiracy theorists allege Axstahl City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
