The Republic of Australopolis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord Vader with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.133 billion Australopolisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Australopolisian economy, worth 720 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,995 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Australopolis's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Force.

Australopolis is ranked 4,527th in the world and 238th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.32 percentage of bribes refused.
