The Grand Duchy of Astograth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Gaxan with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.581 billion Astograthians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rumiatzi. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Astograthian economy, worth a remarkable 3,629 trillion Dirus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,908 Dirus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, Grand Duke Gaxan toils in solitude while relatives party on a remote tropical island, the horniness of the great-horned Lehoi is considered a national priority, and customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Astograth's national animal is the Lehoi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Astograthian folk religion.

Astograth is ranked 1,715th in the world and 3rd in Rushmore for Most Cultured, scoring 253 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
