The Kingdom of Astraee is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Astraea with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.874 billion Astraeeans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astraee Center. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astraeean economy, worth 222 trillion Moons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,836 Moons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astraee's national animal is the lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Astraee is ranked 20,582nd in the world and 642nd in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,234.21 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
