Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population137 million


The Kingdom of Astrind is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 137 million Astrindians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astrindian economy, worth 8.66 trillion lire 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 63,241 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Contestants on Astrind's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astrind's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrind is ranked 25,031st in the world and 979th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 955.9 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
