|Leader||Albrecht IV's Prime Minister Ben Oak|
The Federation of Asterburg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Albrecht IV's Prime Minister Ben Oak with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.323 billion Asterburgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pine River. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Asterburgian economy, worth 81.4 trillion Burgian Tones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,539 Burgian Tones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It's always rabbit season, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asterburg's national animal is the Aster Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
