Axminster is a major city in Hutori. This article is about the Metropolitan Council of Axminster, which contains the city and its suburbs. Axminster is especially important because of its proximity to Bekenial and its status as the seat of House Lusk.

GeographyEdit

The Metropolitan Council is situated at the confluence of the rivers Adel and Laures among marshy plains and rolling, fertile hills. The council is divided up into thirty-eight chapters, corresponding to the thirty-eight distinct cities that comprise the Axminsteran conurbation.

DemographicsEdit

Axminster is a traditional home of the Telamonese and Selucian Lutheran minorities in Hutori, owing mainly to the Lusk family, which is Selucian Lutheran and lived in Telamon for nearly a century. The whole council has, as of 2892, an estimated 25.9 million inhabitants, with 11.3 in the city proper. It has one of the highest male:female ratios of any council, with 114 men for every 100 women.

EconomicsEdit

Axminster's Metropolitan Council does not impose taxes on office buildings. This, combined with its easy access to Bekenial, has made it a popular destination for corporate headquarters and white-collar work of all kinds. In fact, Axminster is the most white-collar metropolitan council in all of Hutori, with relatively few factories along the Adel, mostly of the consumer-goods variety. Axminster is the toy-manufacturing capitol of Macon.

Otherwise, the vast administrative structure of House Lusk and the enormous number of religious sites provide an enormous economic engine for the city.

PoliticsEdit

Axminster has a ceremonial mayor and a powerful Council President who is elected from and by the legislature. The National Syndicalist Party is the dominant party, but many local parties exist, most notably parties like the Independent Luskite Monarchist Party and the Luskite Swedenborgian Party.

The Metropolitan Council of Axminster government is headquartered at Johannesburg, which is up the river Laures from Axminster.
