-Astoria-

Population1.626 billion

CurrencyAstorian dollar

The Republic of -Astoria- is a massive, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 1.626 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient -Astoria-ian economy, worth 67.2 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,299 Astorian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime is well under control. -Astoria-'s national animal is the quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria- is ranked 138,155th in the world and 17th in Council of Constructed Languages for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.29 on the Rand Index.
