The United States of Astoria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President David Jefferson Adams with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.823 billion Astorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,287 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,161 Astorian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, euthanasia is legal, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and in musicals everybody's a little bit racist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astoria's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astoria is ranked 113,185th in the world and 12th in Kayfabeland for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring zero on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
