The Holy Red of Astrind is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Svenko with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.419 billion Astrindians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teneria. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astrindian economy, worth 273 trillion lire 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,945 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astrind's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrind is ranked 6,284th in the world and 373rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.44 on the Human Development Index.
