"Towards a more perfect Multiverse"
Leader: Chairperson Flame
Currency: Golden Star
National Animal: Elephant
The Interstellar Cabal of Astrobolt is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairperson Flame with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.529 billion Astros 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galactus. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Astro economy, worth 690 trillion Golden Stars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 152,460 Golden Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime is totally unknown. Astrobolt's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
Astrobolt arrived in XKI in August 2020, quickly getting involved in World Assembly discussions and TITO within XKI. Citing his arrival to be due to sharing similar values with nations of our region, he is an integral part of world assembly discussions within our region as well as being involved in our cultural department by hosting events such as the Summer Beach Bash. Congratulations our newest Featured Nation, as chosen by the MoE Free Las Pinas and Deputy MoE Lenlyvit!
