The Constitutional Republic of Astrobolt is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chairperson Flame with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.409 billion Astros hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galactus. The average income tax rate is 90.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Astro economy, worth 490 trillion Stars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,808 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse. Crime is totally unknown. Astrobolt's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astrobolt is ranked 172,674th in the world and 705th in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 67.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
