The Republic of -Astoria- is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.996 billion Astorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 917 trillion pynts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,741 pynts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, populations of two-headed bubo buboes have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, skateparks can be found in every city, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria-'s national animal is the bubo bubo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria- is ranked 15,418th in the world and 6th in Council of Constructed Languages for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91 years.
