The Social Federation of Kazakh Astana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Amr Tmr with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.047 billion Act'hs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhqqal' Bȳyev'ctah'. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Act'h economy, worth a remarkable 2,804 trillion Tehqqrals 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 397,955 Tehqqrals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Amr Tmr's wardrobe, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kazakh Astana's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alqreamqỳtem.

Kazakh Astana is ranked 180,910th in the world and 5,880th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -24.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
