The Free Land of New Astri
“Per aspera ad astra - Through hardship to the stars”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Location: The Communist Bloc
Regional Influence: Squire
The Free Land of New Astri is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 633 million 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 Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurath. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving New Astrian economy, worth 48.3 trillion Constels 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 76,280 Constels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, immigrant families holding hands get stopped at the border, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. 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 Elaphoi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
