The Federal Republic of Austiana is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Guido Westerwelle with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.085 billion Austianese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
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 96.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth 940 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 116,299 Austianese Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. 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.
