The Universal Systems of Astronomical is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Skyren Nebulae with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.991 billion Astronomicalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orion Supercluster. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Astronomicalian economy, worth 485 trillion Quasars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,745 Quasars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is totally unknown. Astronomical's national animal is the Ursa Major, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hypernovae.

Astronomical is ranked 65,865th in the world and 3,379th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,062.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
