The Federal Republic of -Astoria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Robert Paisley with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.807 billion Astorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Astorian economy, worth 152 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 84,449 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, billions of dollars are being poured into a space program, government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, and a video of Prime Minister Robert Paisley wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria's national animal is the quokka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 116,906th in the world and 111th in International Democratic Union for Largest Black Market, with 53.3 billion Standard Monetary Units.
