Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Austiana is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Joseph J Powell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.846 billion Austianese 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castratene. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth a remarkable 1,917 trillion Sankers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 176,829 Sankers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 506,273 per year while the poor average 49,168, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Austiana, and golden statues of Eagles line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Austiana's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Powellism.

Austiana is ranked 20,397th in the world and 5th in The Supreme Union for Most Authoritarian, with 1.32 Stalins.
