The Interstellar Cabal of Astrobolt is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairperson Flame with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.226 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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astro economy, worth a remarkable 1,566 trillion Golden Stars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,176 Golden Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Chairperson Flame is a silly poophead, the first half of cabinet meetings include Chairperson Flame complaining about the reasonable nation theory (Astrobolt has found 8 easter eggs), national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, and it's considered providence that the political lexicon contains a syrup of company slogans. Crime is totally unknown. Astrobolt's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astrobolt is ranked 8,537th in the world and 150th in 10000 Islands for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 6,552.29 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
