The Third Empire of Asterguard is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Helnut II with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.528 billion Oberstuttens 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asterguardian economy, worth 319 trillion German Marcs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,258 German Marcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Asterguard's mid-life crisis, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asterguard's national animal is the German Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Banned by State.

Asterguard is ranked 8,120th in the world and 279th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 10,282.35 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
