The Federation of Austral Imperium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ltch Bör Arkttagoussos with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 5.408 billion imperials enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlas. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Austral Imperiumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion GD Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 190,388 GD Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, mums always ask their three-year-olds for permission before hugging them, and married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine. Crime is totally unknown. Austral Imperium's national animal is the Great Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Australian polytheism.

Austral Imperium is ranked 54,094th in the world and 86th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69.78 on the Rand Index.
