Astralania

The People's Republic of Astralania is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 131 million Astrals are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Astrali economy, worth 5.02 trillion novas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,290 novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Astralania City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astralania's national animal is the fruit bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astralania is ranked 15,437th in the world and 62nd in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 84.35 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
