The Novian Republic of Astmora is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.571 billion Astians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 18.7%.

The strong Astian economy, worth 166 trillion Novian Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 64,682 Novian Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Astmora's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astmora is ranked 49,404th in the world and 186th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.75 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
