The Federal Republic of Austiana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Guido Westerwelle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 7.324 billion Austianese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castratene. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth 823 trillion Austianese Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,410 Austianese Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the ban on cars has been repealed, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. 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.
