The Arainean Protectorate of Astriova is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.155 billion Araineans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacen. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astriovan economy, worth 77.5 trillion Credits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,119 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surprising numbers of poor people are protesting against taxing the rich, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the Federal Council of Astriova has been announced as the new Head of State, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astriova's national animal is the raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Astriova is ranked 151,233rd in the world and 103rd in Refugia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
