The Armed Republic of The Armed Empire of Astora is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 350 million Armed Empire of Astorans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The Armed Empire of Astoran economy, worth 16.7 trillion R$ Brazilian Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 47,839 R$ Brazilian Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 308,330 per year while the poor average 2,998, a ratio of 102 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Armed Empire of Astora's national animal is the Harpy eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Armed Empire of Astora is ranked 181,513th in the world and 3rd in Southern Resistance for Highest Economic Output, with 16.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
