The Republic of -Astoria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Robert Paisley with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.287 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 261 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 79,468 Astorian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria's national animal is the opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 28,225th in the world and 51st in International Democratic Union for Highest Poor Incomes, with 59,107.3 Standard Monetary Units.
