Animalnone - we're all animals here

The Republic of Astoriya is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 557 million Astorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astorian economy, worth 40.7 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,047 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime is totally unknown. Astoriya's national animal is the none - we're all animals here, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astoriya is ranked 123,742nd in the world and 57th in Wysteria for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
