The Democratic Republic of Astanzia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Gracchus with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.879 billion Astanzians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corellia. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Astanzian economy, worth 601 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 102,384 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visual acuity is worsening amongst teenagers, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astanzia's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Astanzia is ranked 17,631st in the world and 28th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Secular, with 68.58 Atheism Rate.
