The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.982 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,714 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 286,602 Astorian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, lavish state dinners in Commonwealth Of Astoria City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, and military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft. 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 143,113th in the world and 5,782nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 24.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
