The Extreme Procrastinator of Austro-Bavarian States is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by IKEA CEO Voldemort with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.602 billion Austro-Bavarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of IKEA HQ. The average income tax rate is 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Austro-Bavarian economy, worth 602 trillion IKEA coins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,342 IKEA coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, evidence-based arguments can be arrestable offenses, religious classes are compulsory for all school students, and the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austro-Bavarian States's national animal is the IKEA mutant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is IKEAism.

Austro-Bavarian States is ranked 290,194th in the world and 6,492nd in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 12.12 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
