The Most Serene Republic of Astiaveth is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 209 million Astiavethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astiavethian economy, worth 13.9 trillion Veths 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, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 66,594 Veths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astiaveth's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astiaveth is ranked 67,145th in the world and 2,299th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 62.21 Insults Per Minute.
