The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.456 billion Commonwealth Of Astorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion Astorian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 311,170 Astorian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, refugee camp conversions to Cult Of Amber are increasingly common, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commonwealth Of Astoria's national animal is the Blue Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult Of Amber.

Commonwealth Of Astoria is ranked 5,944th in the world and 163rd in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,904.99 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
