The Republic of -Astoria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Robert Paisley with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.249 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Footscray. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 258 trillion Astorian dollars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 79,468 Astorian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Astoria's national animal is the opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Astoria is ranked 59,975th in the world and 54th in International Democratic Union for Most Secular, with 19.97 Atheism Rate.
