The People's Popular Republic of Astolfotopia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sebastian Koch with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.779 billion Montianities 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 Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Montianitie economy, worth 190 trillion Montianitie Mediterranean Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,583 Montianitie Mediterranean Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", skateparks can be found in every city, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astolfotopia's national animal is the Montianitie Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Astolfotopia is ranked 128,696th in the world and 81st in Institute of Cellulose for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
