|Leader||President De Vries|
The Peripheral Union State of Astriya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President De Vries with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-working population of 1.672 billion Astriyans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldoraigne. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Astriyan economy, worth 184 trillion Lycas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 110,182 Lycas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
Astriya has taken the radical step of electing its future leaders, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and aspiring authors begrudgingly help proofread issue submissions (Astriya has found 2 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astriya's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Astriyan Deism.
