Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Auchterland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime-Minister Aidan Schirmer with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.614 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 Schildhaven. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong auchterlandish economy, worth 342 trillion marks 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 marks, 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 Schildhaven 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 auchterlandish guardian dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Auchterland is ranked 105,082nd in the world and 3rd in Imperium of Nations for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.4 Crimes Per Hour.
