The Kingdom of The Glorious Land of Astros is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great and Honorable Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.518 billion Astrosians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleroi. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Astrosian economy, worth a remarkable 3,979 trillion Astras a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 345,542 Astras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Glassy-eyed Astrosian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, nudity is frowned upon, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Glorious Land of Astros's national animal is the Astrosian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Holy Church of the State of Astros.

The Glorious Land of Astros is ranked 51,174th in the world and 1,717th in Osiris for Rudest Citizens, with 68.41 Insults Per Minute.
