The Holy Red of Astrind is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Svenko with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.77 billion Astrindians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal 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 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astrindian economy, worth 406 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,731 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 164,921st in the world and 3,842nd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 88.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
