The Commonwealth of Commonwealth Of Astoria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rachel Dawn Amber with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.828 billion Commonwealth Of Astorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, 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 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth Of Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,498 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 Automobile Manufacturing. 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 319,128 Astorian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba, a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, and the sun rises an hour later on border communities. 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.

Commonwealth Of Astoria is ranked 4,406th in the world and 72nd in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,498 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
