Population1.804 billion



The Republic of Astaaria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Omega with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.804 billion Astaarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astarce. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Astaarian economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,858 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astaaria's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astaaria is ranked 209,449th in the world and 8,137th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.47 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
