The Great Western Sasquatch of Bran Astor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Harry Henderson with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.306 billion Astorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stumptown. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,863 trillion bytecoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 164,848 bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bran Astor's national animal is the tree octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Gnostic Creationism.

Bran Astor is ranked 10,556th in the world and 185th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,560.23 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
