The Holy Red of Astrind is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Svenko with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.813 billion Astrindians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teneria. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astrindian economy, worth 412 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,151 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astrind's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrind is ranked 35,994th in the world and 1,619th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,563.24 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
