Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Austiana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Guido Westerwelle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 7.69 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government 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 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth 881 trillion Austianese Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,636 Austianese Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wreckages of bombed planes that litter Austiana are highly popular tourist destinations, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. 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.

Austiana is ranked 3rd in The Supreme Union and 4,051st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 20 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
