Federation of the Astral Plane

Population10.081 billion

CapitalSeven Heavens of Celestia


The Federal Republic of Federation of the Astral Plane is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.081 billion Astrals are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seven Heavens of Celestia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Federation of the Astral Planean economy, worth a remarkable 2,535 trillion Moxens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 251,482 Moxens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federation of the Astral Plane's national animal is the Angel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Federation of the Astral Plane is ranked 386th in the world and 11th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,688.26 Tourists Per Hour.
