The Asteria Inferior Common Market (Gaullican: Marché commun d'Asteria Inférieur; MACOAI), also known by its Estmerish abbreviation ASTCOM, is a trade bloc made up of nine Asterian nations.

Initial talks began in 1989, with the Kingsleigh Treaty being signed that year by Satavia, Nuvania and Satucin. Further talks culminated with the Treaty of Gatôn in 1992, which was signed by the signatories of the Kingsleigh Treaty and Aucuria, Arbolada, Azure Coast and Puramape.


Initial talks of an Asterian trade bloc officially began in 1989, between Satavia, Nuvania and Satucin and culminated in an agreement signed in the Satavian town of Kingsleigh, in late 1989.

Talks continued on to 1992, when, the three original Kingsleigh Treaty signatures signed an agreement with Aucuria, Arbolada, Belmonte, Gapolania, Adamantina, and Côte d'Azur, in the form of the Treaty of Gatôn, which lead to the creation of ASTCOM.

In 2007, ASTCOM relocated its headquarters from its original building to "The ASTCOM Center", a 1980s construction.

Asterian Council

The Asterian Council is the central committee of ASTCOM, and is convened in ASTCOM's headquaters in Gatôn. The council has nine members - one from each member state, and the Secretary General, who chairs council meetings.

Council meetings are called, normally, once every month unless a member state petitions to the Secretary General for an extraordinary meeting.

ASTCOM's Headquarters, in Gatôn

Each country gets one vote - regardless of population size or economical power - and the Secretary General does not vote, unless the result returns a tie, normally due to an abstention. If a tie is reached, the Secretary General normally votes against, so as to retain the status quo, although the Secretary General does not have to vote against and can vote either way.

The council only votes on matters relating directly to ASTCOM, and does not intefere with international law cases brought upon one another member states, or force member states to adopt legislation internally.
