The Republic of Astroa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alexander James Solacito with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.07 billion Astroans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ubalin. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astroan economy, worth 391 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 127,568 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astroa's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astroa is ranked 5,278th in the world and 149th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.93 on the Human Development Index.
