The Federal Republic of -Astoria is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 552 million Astorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Public Transport, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 25.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astorian economy, worth 33.0 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,859 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, and glamping Astorians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown. -Astoria's national animal is the nothing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 49,603rd in the world and 54th in International Democratic Union for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
