Austro Hungarian Union

Population496 million


CurrencyAustro Hungarian Krone

The Federation of Austro Hungarian Union is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 496 million Austro Hungarians 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The strong Austro Hungarian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Austro Hungarian Kroner a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 61,587 Austro Hungarian Kroner, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 208,486 per year while the poor average 13,443, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, lavish state dinners in Vienna are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, bars are packed at all hours, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austro Hungarian Union's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Austro Hungarian Union is ranked 67,188th in the world and 2,664th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 84.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
