The OftInactive Retired Delegate of Eggy216 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Miguel Estévez Velázquez with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.949 billion Astleyans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ainish City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The enormous but inefficient Astleyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,122 trillion Civilies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 80,477 Civilies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eggy216's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eggism.

Eggy216 is ranked 20,037th in the world and 68th in Social Liberal Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 205.18 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
