The Free Land of Asthara is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Asthari with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 18.858 billion Astharans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asthara City. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Astharan economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 trillion Asthars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 64,078 Asthars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and glamping Astharans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asthara's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
