Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Auchterland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Phillip Scheibler with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.088 billion auchterlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auchterburg. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong auchterlander economy, worth 310 trillion auchtersmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,064 auchtersmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Auchterburg Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auchterland's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Auchterland is ranked 54,437th in the world and 2nd in Imperium of Nations for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
