The Communist Monarchy of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.976 billion Commonwealth Of Astorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commonwealth Of Astoria City. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,705 trillion Astorian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 371,472 Astorian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Serial killers are the country's biggest import, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, and produce labels read 'may contain traces of food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commonwealth Of Astoria's national animal is the Blue Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult Of Amber.
