The New Republic of Austiana is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Joseph J Powell with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.303 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 prioritizes 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 81.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Austianan economy, worth a remarkable 1,950 trillion Sankers a year, is 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 172,554 Sankers, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that President Joseph J Powell dislikes are turned away at the border, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply. 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 128,853rd in the world and 12th in The Supreme Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
