The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.705 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,981 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 295,490 Astorian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, military spending recently hit a new high, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. 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 45,911th in the world and 1,908th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 24.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
