The Republic of Astionia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Patton with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.108 billion Astionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damond. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Astionian economy, worth 158 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,291 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, builders across Astionia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Damond's playgrounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astionia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astionia is ranked 29,051st in the world and 1,335th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,480.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
