The Imperium of Adaptus Astrates is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Stephanos I with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 29.889 billion Adaptus Astratesians 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 medium-sized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caliban. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Adaptus Astratesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,404 trillion aquilas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 147,351 aquilas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, and forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Adaptus Astrates's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Adaptus Astrates is ranked 7,321st in the world and 13th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,620.79 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
