The Federal Republic of -Astoria is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.233 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Astorian economy, worth 77.4 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,740 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Footscray Natural History Museum, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and major boxing matches are held in government buildings. Crime is totally unknown. -Astoria's national animal is the non-applicable, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
