Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Austiana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Joseph J Powell with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.197 billion Austianese are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castratene. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth a remarkable 1,427 trillion Sankers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 155,216 Sankers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 525,329 per year while the poor average 33,892, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, Castratene is a police state during international summits, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Austiana's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Powellism.

Austiana is ranked 35,209th in the world and 15th in The Supreme Union for Longest Average Lifespans, with 68.17 Years.
