Astra Planeti

The Queendom of Astra Planeti is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 690 million Astra Planetians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erebus. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Astra Planetian economy, worth 48.6 trillion Dinars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,489 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the last thing Astra Planetian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astra Planeti's national animal is the Sturgeon Fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Astra Planeti is ranked 218,542nd in the world and 8,174th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -175.35 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
