The Holy Red of Astrind is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Svenko with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.384 billion Astrindians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teneria. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astrindian economy, worth 269 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,945 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astrind's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrind is ranked 4,904th in the world and 252nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
