The Constitutional Grand Duchy of The City-State of Vienna is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Duke Ferdinand XVII with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.668 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Arms Manufacturing.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Vienna Times is sold out, all streets are privately owned toll roads, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. The City-State of Vienna's national animal is the Cottontail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Viennan Mark.
