OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Great Western Sasquatch of Bran Astor is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harry Henderson with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.37 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 Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stumptown. The average income tax rate is 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion bytecoins a year, is fairly diversified and 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 166,127 bytecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 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 192,779th in the world and 5,471st in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
