The Republic of Astrochelonia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and lack of airports. The compassionate population of 3.424 billion Astrochelonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Miami. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Astrochelonian economy, worth 196 trillion Cheloniums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,347 Cheloniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astrochelonia's national animal is the Green Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrochelonia is ranked 122,392nd in the world and 6th in Autism Spectrum for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
