The Holy Red of Astrind is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Svenko with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic population of 796 million Astrindians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teneria. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Astrindian economy, worth 82.3 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 103,409 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, city-dwellers are forcibly moved to farming communes in the countryside, solid-gold toilets are Astrindian prisons' least expensive furnishings, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Astrind. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astrind's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Astrind is ranked 18,947th in the world and 1,021st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.39 on the Human Development Index.
