“Each endeavoring, all achieving”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: The Supreme Union
The Federation of Austiana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Bernhard Eisenberg with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.879 billion Austianese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castratene. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.
Rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, a government program is underway to revitalize Austiana's beaches, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and Eagle is one of the most popular forenames in Austiana. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austiana's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Austianese Dollar.
