The Sublime Island Kingdom of Astrolinium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Astorias Maldivis III with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.703 billion Astroliniani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrolinium. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, cars are banned from built-up areas, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is totally unknown. Astrolinium's national animal is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Australe.

Astrolinium is ranked 26th in Ankh Mauta and 18,787th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
