The Sasquatch Guardian of Bran Astor is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bran Astor with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.115 billion Astorians 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wahkiakum TSR. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 564 trillion dentaliums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,234 dentaliums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", the arms industry is strictly regulated, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Astorian politicians, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bran Astor's national animal is the Sasquatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Creationists.

Bran Astor is ranked 120,473rd in the world and 5,152nd in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
