The Principality of Astafaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Asta Far with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 12.875 billion Astafarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astafar. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Astafarian economy, worth 33.2 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,574 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, Astafaria has designated Astafar as its capital city, Asta Far has just been declared ruler of Astafaria in an international press conference, and Astafarism has been named as Astafaria's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astafaria's national animal is the bear and its national religion is Astafarism.

Astafaria is ranked 142,727th in the world and 2nd in Asta Fan Club for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 68.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
