The Federalis Imperium of Astares Amauricanum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Keisaer Adrean Blachkor with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.204 billion Astarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration 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 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Astarian economy, worth 549 trillion Covins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 171,484 Covins, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Astarian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, spies caught in Astares Amauricanum are never heard from again, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". 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 40,353rd in the world and 2nd in Astares Covenant for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,847.11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
