New Astri

Population460 million



The Free Land of New Astri is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 460 million New Astrians 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurath. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Astrian economy, worth 31.6 trillion Constels 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is 68,670 Constels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Astri's national animal is the Elaphoi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Astri is ranked 143,651st in the world and 262nd in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.3 Weapons Per Person.
