“Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori”

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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.895 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 Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Viennese economy, worth 746 trillion Viennan Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 108,260 Viennan Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
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 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.
