The Free State of Aestorn is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Older Pig with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory gun ownership, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.075 billion Aestornians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Administration, with Education, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gipi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.9%.

The all-consuming Aestornian economy, worth 123 trillion coins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 30,233 coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Aestornian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aestorn's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aestorn is ranked 4,091st in the world and 56th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 27 Valid Endorsements.
