The Southern Osean Kingdom of Asthea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Akari Emiko with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.673 billion Astheanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griswall. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asthean economy, worth 371 trillion Astheans Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,048 Astheans Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asthea's national animal is the Alio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacifismic.

Asthea is ranked 170,849th in the world and 9,456th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -8.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
