The Nation of Astanmark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by David Zafar Yusuf with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.052 billion Astanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Astania. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astanian economy, worth 744 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,067 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, and lavish state dinners in New Astania are the state's leading budgetary expenditure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astanmark's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Astanmark is ranked 56,447th in the world and 168th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
