|Leader||Empress Nigata Hanami|
The Nationalist Imperial Kingdom of Asthea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Nigata Hanami with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.382 billion Astheanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griswall. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Asthean economy, worth 707 trillion Astheans Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 161,464 Astheans Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. 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.
