AU Headquarters

Population8.709 billion

LeaderStory Director


The Office of AU Headquarters is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Story Director with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.709 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milwaukee. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The American economy, worth 269 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Cheese Exports. Average income is 30,917 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

AU Headquarters has designated Milwaukee as its capital city, Story Director has just been declared ruler of AU Headquarters in an international press conference, a major religion has been named as AU Headquarters's national religion, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AU Headquarters's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

AU Headquarters is ranked 91,483rd in the world and 11th in American Coalition of Nations for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.85 Crimes Per Hour.
