The Constitutional Monarchy of Lost Astoria is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 374 million Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odellus-Kalathar. The average income tax rate is 57.1%.

The powerhouse Astorian economy, worth 30.9 trillion Hawkpences a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 82,523 Hawkpences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, a referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lost Astoria's national animal is the Astorian Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lost Astoria is ranked 31,704th in the world and 47th in Anteria for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 211.62 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
