The Great Western Sasquatch of Bran Astor is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Harry Henderson with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.181 billion Astorians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Defense 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 Stumptown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 trillion bytecoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 167,668 bytecoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 529,937 per year while the poor average 40,503, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bran Astor's national animal is the tree octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Gnostic Creationism.

Bran Astor is ranked 194,990th in the world and 6,209th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 71.64 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
