The Federalis Imperium of Astares Amauricanum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Keisaer Adrean Blachkor with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.205 billion Astarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia District. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Astarian economy, worth 955 trillion Covins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 183,629 Covins, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art, Astarian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Astares Amauricanum's mid-life crisis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astares Amauricanum's national animal is the Silver Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Astarian Star Polytheism.

Astares Amauricanum is ranked 123,824th in the world and 4th in Astares Covenant for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 919.23 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
