The Parliamentary Republic of Astronea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nikolas Detrom with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.17 billion Astroneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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. The average income tax rate is 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Astronean economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 trillion monyas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,595 monyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions, the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. 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 8,635th in the world and 4th in Sunalaya for Most Armed, with 9.65 Weapons Per Person.
