The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.606 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, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,594 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 284,402 Astorian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 883,585 per year while the poor average 70,432, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Vaccinations are mandatory, Commonwealth Of Astoria Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', the nation has nearly as many history museums as Commonwealth Of Astorians, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 7,033rd in the world and 118th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,594 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
