The Federation of Astoryia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Troye Ute with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 1.002 billion Astors have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arad. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astoryian economy, worth 120 trillion Astorian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,660 Astorian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, bars are packed at all hours, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astoryia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Astoryia is ranked 17,592nd in the world and 54th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 85.09 on the Human Development Index.
