The Empire of Astonia3 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emmanuel Goldstein V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.776 billion Astonia3ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ballamm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.3%.

The strong Astonia3ian economy, worth 242 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,211 rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 185,694 per year while the poor average 17,605, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, and many believe that Emmanuel Goldstein V's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astonia3's national animal is the unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Inism.

Astonia3 is ranked 213,833rd in the world and 291st in Oneid for Most Secular, with 12.62 Atheism Rate.
