The Republic of Astroa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander James Solacito with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.889 billion Astroans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ubalin. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astroan economy, worth 367 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 127,161 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers are celebrating Alexander James Solacito saving over a million cats from trees, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, Ubalin spends billions upgrading public transport, and workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astroa's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astroa is ranked 159,643rd in the world and 6,076th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -165.78 on the Hayek Index.
