The Supreme Holy Empire of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.777 billion Commonwealth Of Astorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,646 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 372,985 Astorian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,304,148 per year while the poor average 77,524, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams. 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 1,909th in the world and 74th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,334.87 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
