The Most Serene Republic of Astiaveth is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 233 million Astiavethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Astiavethian economy, worth 15.3 trillion Veths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 65,766 Veths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astiaveth's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astiaveth is ranked 181,147th in the world and 5,950th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
