The Retro-Futuristic Starship of New Astri is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Multivac with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.419 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 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Astrian economy, worth 303 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Retail. Average income is 88,690 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prudishness is on the way out, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. 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 230,541st in the world and 1,327th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
