New Astri

Population3.068 billion

CapitalNeo Io


The Endorse Kethania of New Astri is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Multivac with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.068 billion New Astrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Io. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Astrian economy, worth 272 trillion Credits 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Retail. Average income is 88,730 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, prudishness is on the way out, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Astri's national animal is the Vacuumorph, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is unspecificed.

New Astri is ranked 17,274th in the world and 354th in The Communist Bloc for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.2 bananas ingested per day.
