The Commonwealth of Pastern is a massive, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.918 billion Pasternians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasternian economy, worth 234 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,292 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, Pasternian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and whole-wheat loaves can only be ordered on the dark web. Crime is totally unknown. Pastern's national animal is the Crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pastern is ranked 42,795th in the world and 775th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,188.08 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
