The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.306 billion Commonwealth Of Astorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,831 trillion Astorian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 290,461 Astorian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

A light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commonwealth Of Astoria's national animal is the Blue Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult Of Amber.

Commonwealth Of Astoria is ranked 744th in the world and 14th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 74,527.33 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
