The Parliamentary Republic of Astronea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nikolas Detrom with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.993 billion Astroneans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Feldrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Astronean economy, worth a remarkable 1,367 trillion monyas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 124,440 monyas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,909 per year while the poor average 32,950, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. 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 13,807th in the world and 6th in New Atlas for Most Developed, scoring 82.43 on the Human Development Index.
