The Nation of Astanmark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by David Zafar Yusuf with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, avowedly heterosexual populace, and aversion to nipples. 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 123,005 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, and carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing. 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 56,391st in the world and 166th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
