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 stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.077 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 363 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Basket Weaving. Average income is 71,633 Astorian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria's national animal is the opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 52,191st in the world and 23rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,534.21 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
