The Wilayat Islamiyyah of Astakona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by General Major Mohmed Bashar Osim with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.259 billion Astakonans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aslam. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astakonan economy, worth 420 trillion Kiraats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 128,945 Kiraats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and on-duty Air Astakona flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astakona's national animal is the Albino Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Astakona is ranked 22,378th in the world and 1st in Council of Islamic States for Most Secular, with 45.02 Atheism Rate.
