Astrum Nigrum

Population18.821 billion


CurrencyBlack Star

The Free Territory of Astrum Nigrum is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.821 billion Astrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svatania. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Astrum Nigrumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,518 trillion Black Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 240,094 Black Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime is totally unknown. Astrum Nigrum's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astrum Nigrum is ranked 2,605th in the world and 16th in Anarchy for Highest Drug Use, scoring 117.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
