The Southern Osean Kingdom of Asthea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Hana Emiko with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.342 billion Astheanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griswall. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Asthean economy, worth 301 trillion Astheans Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,788 Astheans Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government-sponsored autobiography 'A Princess Hana Emiko For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Princess Hana Emiko's supporters, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, Princess Hana Emiko can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asthea's national animal is the Alio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacifismic.

Asthea is ranked 159,491st in the world and 8,318th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 13 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
