The Grand Duchy of Austeira is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 863 million Austeirans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.6%.

The Austeiran economy, worth 37.1 trillion Kroners a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 42,974 Kroners, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

International trade can be a pain to deal with, babies are a small but significant export, teachers regularly paddle unruly students, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austeira's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Austeira is ranked 132,081st in the world and 40th in Meillur for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
