The Interstellar Cabal of Astrobolt is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairperson Flame with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.387 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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astro economy, worth 974 trillion Golden 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 152,512 Golden Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Galactus for fear of causing a fuss, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Chairperson Flame is a silly poophead. Crime is totally unknown. Astrobolt's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astrobolt is ranked 2,324th in the world and 40th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 25,591.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
