The Great Western Sasquatch of Bran Astor is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Harry Henderson with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.389 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stumptown. The average income tax rate is 56.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 trillion bytecoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 166,136 bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bran Astor's national animal is the tree octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Gnostic Creationism.

Bran Astor is ranked 191,063rd in the world and 5,362nd in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
