The Constitutional Grand Duchy of The City-State of Vienna is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Duke Ferdinand XVII with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.004 billion Viennans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Viennese economy, worth 907 trillion Viennan Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 113,394 Viennan Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, religious education is a new government priority, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The City-State of Vienna's national animal is the Cottontail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
