The Free Land of Astropol is a huge, genial nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 891 million Astropolians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astropolis. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astropolian economy, worth 84.4 trillion Bricks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 94,768 Bricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, Leader is considering changing the Astropolian flag to one with more glitter, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astropol's national animal is the Cosmo Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astropol is ranked 19,013th in the world and 483rd in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.84 on the Human Development Index.
