The Federal Republic of -Astoria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 691 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 receives no funds. 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 41.4 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 59,865 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 non-applicable, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 53,298th in the world and 43rd in International Democratic Union for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
