The Republic of Asturen is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 367 million Asturishes enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oviedo. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Asturenian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,862 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, parking's carefree without parking car fees, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asturen's national animal is the Eurasian Eagle-Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Asturen is ranked 102,792nd in the world and 792nd in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 68 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
