The Back In Black of Eggy216 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Miguel Estévez Velázquez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.931 billion Astleyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ainish City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.
The Astleyan economy, worth 984 trillion Civilies a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 99,106 Civilies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the undead roam the streets and countryside at night (Eggy216 has found 4 easter eggs), and the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (Eggy216 has found 4 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eggy216's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eggism.
