The Republic of -Astoria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Robert Paisley with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.853 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liskerry. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 525 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,609 Astorian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime Minister Robert Paisley panders to nontraditional families, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, -Astoria is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria's national animal is the marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 230,662nd in the world and 92nd in International Democratic Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.52 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
