The Commonwealth of Pastern is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.405 billion Pasternians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pasternian economy, worth 304 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,412 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incidents involving lethal string attacks have gone way up, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, builders across Pastern are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown. Pastern's national animal is the Crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pastern is ranked 21,626th in the world and 502nd in the West Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 9 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
