LeaderBran Astor


The Pretty Sasquatch Guardian of Bran Astor is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bran Astor with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.59 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 38.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 352 trillion dentaliums a year, is broadly 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 136,285 dentaliums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". 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 Neeism.

Bran Astor is ranked 20,657th in the world and 824th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,831.75 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
