The Parliamentary Republic of Astronea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nikolas Detrom with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.09 billion Astroneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Feldrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Astronean economy, worth a remarkable 1,663 trillion monyas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,112 monyas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 371,888 per year while the poor average 34,290, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the endangered saltwater humpback Eurasian Lynx is only seen in captivity programs, and the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astronea's national animal is the Eurasian Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Druidism.

Astronea is ranked 75,075th in the world and 2,473rd in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
