The Bundesrepublik of Austrakia is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical population of 16.319 billion Austraks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The Austrakisch economy, worth 849 trillion Schillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 52,084 Schillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is compulsory, punitive tariffs protect local industry, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austrakia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Austrakia is ranked 104,270th in the world and 12th in Teremara for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 83.07 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
