The Most Serene Republic of The Astral Eternals is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Councillor Eva with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.454 billion Eternals 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adastra City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Eternal economy, worth a remarkable 3,777 trillion vitans 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 280,742 vitans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, all the playground's a stage for Eternal schoolchildren, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Astral Eternals's national animal is the spirit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eternality.

The Astral Eternals is ranked 63,099th in the world and 142nd in The Internationale for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
