The Federalis Imperium of Astares Amauricanum is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Keisaer Adrean Blachkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.917 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, well-organized 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 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Astarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,516 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 191,545 Covins, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, cheese lovers have a case of the bleus, heated town halls quickly descend into shootouts between politicians and their constituents, and a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass. 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 23,924th in the world and 3rd in Astares Covenant for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,509.58 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
